Welcome to the
In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.
At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.
With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.
Summer Day Camp at the Valley Points Family YMCA provides children with creative, sustained, educational experiences in a wholesome atmosphere. Through the use of carefully planned programs with trained leadership, children are helped to achieve their fullest potential in terms of mental development, physical well-being and social growth.
Y Summer Day Camp offers one week thematic sessions of fun and activities for children ages 5—12 (children must have completed Kindergarten). Children participate in a full day of sports, arts & crafts, games, educational activities and swimming. Children must bring a brown bag lunch; refrigeration is provided.
Parents are responsible for transportation to and from camp. All sites are open for early drop-off at 7:00am and are open until 6:00pm for late pick-up. Breakfast and an afternoon snack are provided at no additional charge.
