Kinder Camp

Ages 4 – 5

EZ Child Track Parent Portal

Creativity Starts Here!

Campers benefit from an afternoon quiet/nap period as well as lower camper-to-staff ratios. Campers enjoy changing weekly themes. Y programs meet children’s individual needs by offering cognitively, socially, and physically enriching curricula. Activities include building blocks and construction, dramatic play, reading, science and math, arts & crafts, creative expression, outdoor play, games and puzzles, and much more!

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, Social-Emotional Learning activities, and other activities will be based on the weekly theme.

“Kinder camp helped my son feel confident with his colors, shapes, and letters. He always came home singing songs that he learned with his friends at the Y.”
