Summer Programs for Our Valley’s Youth
ABOUT THE SUMMER PROGRAMS
Getting a break from learning in school doesn’t mean that kids should not be learning outside the classroom this summer. The Y’s summer programs give children opportunities for new experiences and personal growth. Young people in our care learn new skills, make new friends, and develop self-confidence and self-esteem while having fun. We understand that you want the very best for your child and we would be honored to be part of your child’s summer. A well-trained, enthusiastic staff is the key to a positive summer program experience. Y staff members are dedicated to providing a safe and wholesome environment for each child. They are chosen for their maturity, strong values, enthusiasm and ability to be positive role models for children. Before they work with your child, Y staff members have criminal history and multiple reference checks completed and undergo extensive training emphasizing safety, child growth and development, and group dynamics. All Y staff members are certified in First Aid and CPR and aquatic activities are supervised by certified lifeguards. The Y is committed to the health and well-being of every child in our care.
