About vacation care
YMCA Vacation Care is more than a necessity for many parents; it’s an opportunity for your child’s life to be enriched by new experiences, knowledge, places and people.
The children’s interests are the foundations of our programs. Activities are structured to include activities children choose to do, developing their independence and life skills. Our Vacation Care programs encourage children to be involved in a variety of activities, including art, craft, cooking, sport, dance and drama.
