For Adventure Games: We might go outside depending on the weather, so make sure your children are dressed appropriately!

*Please make sure that your children are wearing close-toed shoes.  Sandals and flip flops are only acceptable on the pool deck.


Attire

Welcome to Spring Break Camp! During camp this year we will be working with fun themes. Check them out below.

“Planet Earth” theme

On Friday, kids will be encouraged to dress up according to the theme. Otherwise, please make sure that kids are wearing active clothing for active games!

Code of Ethics

We are excited that your kids have signed up for camp this winter.  We want to make it clear, however, that camp is a privilege for each child that attends.  We will do everything in our power to make sure that each child feels successful, safe and has fun in our camps.  

Children will learn to model the YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.  If for some reason your child struggles in any of these areas however, we will reach out to you in order to have a conversation to support your child in having a success day.
