Mondays through Fridays, 6/21/18 - 8/24/18 

6 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Parents asked, and we listened: Y Kids Camp is back for children in grades K–5. Part of a nationwide initiative, Y Kids Camp aims to battle summer learning “backslide” so kids return to school ready to learn.

Y Kids Camp is based at the Y in Auburn and caters to curious kiddos, weaving STEM and literacy activities into daily games and weekly field trips. For the school age child that needs further help in their education goals, or for the prevention of summer literacy loss, the Y Kids Camp offers a great opportunity.

This camp is housed at the Y but incorporates field trips within the community, including a weekly trip to swim! Early education teachers, artists, coaches, and other professionals help to make each week unique and exciting.

Cost : Member $130 wk /Nonmember $140 wk  | Scholarships are available
