Summer Day Camp

YMCA camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside of their normal lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests and new friends. Parents have trusted YMCA camps for generations, because we offer experiences that help foster leadership, self-confidence, and deepen respect for the environments and communities we live in. We offer a variety of camp themes, so there’s always a place for your kids at Y camp.

Y Club Before and After School Enrichment Program

In Y Club Before and After School Enrichment Programs, kids engage in physical, learning and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve. Get high-quality Y care right at your school and keep your child active physically, intellectually and socially the whole day. When school's out, you can trust the Y to provide an engaging experience for your child right at school.

Early Childhood Education

For those times when you can’t be there yourself, we provide a safe, nurturing environment where your child will learn, grow and thrive. Our Early Childhood Center is licensed by the State of Illinois and all child care staff members receive extensive training through the national YMCA of the USA as well as through the Gateway Region YMCA.
Kids enjoy activities and games in the gym at the YMCA Schools Out Program for when school is out of session.
