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!

Note: There will be no swimming or field trips for Early Education.
