Attention Summer Camp Parents --

The final week of Y Summer Camp is almost here. This week is a little different from the previous weeks with new camp locations and a shorter week. 

In an effort to help schools best prepare for the beginning of another school year, Y Summer Camps combine and operate mainly from YMCA facilities. We also pack the final week of summer with lots of swimming and field trips. So, please take a second to read below and pay special attention to CAMP LOCATION, BUS DEPARTURE TIMES, and SWIMMING DAYS.
