YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
YMCA Camp Ingersoll starts June 15th
Registration is OPEN NOW for returning families. Visit our WEBSITE to learn more about OPEN HOUSES, BUS ROUTES, FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, SUMMER CAMP SESSIONS & MORE. Our camp day consists of eight 45- minute periods shared among swim lessons, specialty areas, lunch, free swim and counselor planned activities. All tribes visit one specialty area a day. Trained facilitators lead each area in fun and engaging activities to promote skill and character development. Swim lessons take place every morning for Traditional Camps and a few Specialty Camps.
Let your kids play while you workout!
When you come to work out at the YMCA, consider bringing your children along for the fun that awaits them in Child Watch, the Y’s free babysitting service. Children ages eight weeks to 11 years can participate in age-appropriate activities in a safe environment. Reservations aren’t required, and your child can enjoy fun activities for up to two hours a day while you are in the building.
Child Watch is available Monday – Friday 9:00 – 11:15 am, Monday – Thursday evenings 5:15 – 7:30 pm, except Wednesdays 5:00 – 7:00 pm (New time). To learn more please contact the Welcome Center.
