Ages 4 to 5

Summer Club has plenty to offer kids aged 4 to 5 that want a taste of everything this summer—storytelling, the creative arts, special guest and event days, group games, and more! Based on the YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum, this unique, play-based program exposes children to new and exciting learning opportunities that help them make friends, gain independence, develop confidence, and prepare for the upcoming school year. Busing is not available for this program.

Ages 6 to 12

Watch your 6 to 12-year-old excel as they explore and discover their community through activities such as neighbourhood hikes and field trips. Kids will also spend the summer developing important life skills like leadership and team building through fun games and activities that include arts and crafts, sports, group projects and themed event days they create and plan themselves. Our curriculum, A Place to Connect, delivers a quality program that is active and fun. Busing is not available for this program.
