School Break Camp
Bring the magic of camp to the school year!
There is no better way to spend a school holiday than with the YMCA! We make the most of time off from school by packing days full of fun camp activities for kids of all ages and interests, including arts and crafts, group games, active play, and STEM projects. The Y’s School Break and No School Day Camps are designed to keep kids engaged and having fun while learning and spending time with friends old and new.
These programs are just for families enrolled in the Y's Before and After-School Enrichment. Registration is opening soon!
We offer a full-day camp on many no school days from 7:30 am–5:30 pm, including the state teacher in-service day on Friday, October 13. No school day camp offerings vary by school district calendar.
We offer full-day camps during elementary school conferences, winter break, mid-winter break, and spring break from 7:30 am–5:30 pm. School break camp offerings vary by school district calendar.
Registration closes on Wednesday at 5:00 pm for camps provided the following week. For example, registration closes on Wednesday, October 4 for the state in-service day on Friday, October 13.
