There's no better way to spend a day off from school than at the YWCA. Our program offers kids a full day of interesting activities when most schools are closed for holidays and/or vacation. Make new friends or cultivate different interests or skills. Campers bring lunch, beverage, swimsuit, towel and bathing cap. Snacks are provided. Space is limited and registration is ongoing.
