EZ Child Track Parent Portal

Summer Fun Starts Here!

Theme Camp offers new experiences mixed with old camp favorites! Campers thrive during various daily activities including organized games, arts & crafts, and much more.

Leadership opportunities through clubs, project-based learning, LEGO challenges, participating in STEM challenges, and creative art stations will engage young minds. Many activities will focus on the YMCA character values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring.

Every week, children will enjoy a dip in a YMCA swimming pool, take a field trip, and receive a special onsite experience related to the weekly theme.

Financial Assistance Policy:

EAC YMCA programs and activities are designed to benefit persons of all backgrounds, and fees are based on the cost of providing each program. While participants are expected to pay their fair share, EAC YMCA will assist families that want to participate but cannot afford the fee. Financial Assistance will be awarded to working families that meet our income guidelines and/or can demonstrate a need for fee assistance. Since demand for assistance is great and funds are limited, we encourage parents to apply early. You can complete our prescreen questions while completing your online summer application.

The EAC Y caters weekly camp themes to each camp with engaging and fun age appropriate curriculum. Games, arts & crafts, STEM projects, songs, team building activities, Social-Emotional Learning activities, field trips, and other activities will be based on the weekly theme.
