What do happy parents say about Y Summer Camps?

"My girls are learning how to work in groups of very diverse people, how to respect individual differences and be grateful for the experiences that are provided."

"My son has special needs and could not be happier with the Y. He was included and made friends. We know he can be challenging at times, but we only needed to pick him up from camp one time. Other camps had given up very quickly and isolated our son from the other kids in the past. Not at the Y, we appreciate the staff so much!"
