Through the YMCA’s values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, we provide a safe place for your child to learn foundational skills; develop healthy, trusting relationships; build self-reliance and have fun during the best summer ever!

Preschool Camp will give children the opportunity to explore new ideals through discovery, science and art.  The curriculum is designed to promote self-confidence, problem solving and grow social skills all while making new friends.  The children will have fun becoming explorers and scientists, learning about planets, insects and fish as well as creating artful masterpieces. All of the counselors are early childhood professionals who are very excited to encourage your child’s self-growth.
