Welcome to YMCA Summer Program! At the YMCA, kids have fun while they learn how to make new friends, build new skills and grow in self-reliance. Studies show that under the careful guidance of trained, certified counselors, children cultivate a positive identity and develop and refine social, physical and critical thinking skills. Equally important is the infusion of positive values such as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. The concepts of independence and discovery come into play every day at the YMCA!
