Ballet and Tap
The values and skills learned early in life are vital building blocks for a successful adulthood, and we believe all kids deserve a strong start and a safe place to grow. Parents trust the Y’s child care programs to support and nurture their children from infancy through the teen years and help them become strong, capable and engaged young people.
At Y camp, kids have the opportunity to explore, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories. And, above all, it’s so fun! We offer camp throughout the entire summer! Our camps are designed for a wide variety of conventional interests that include arts & crafts, group games, nature exploration, swimming, field trips and more. Camps are themed weekly. Most camp activities are held outdoors with indoor activities provided based on the day and theme. Day campers are divided into groups by the grade level they are entering in the fall. Registration opens on December 26 for the following summer.
