Summer Enrichment Program


The YMCA Summer Enrichment Program provides a safe & wholesome environment in which children can learn to communicate effectively, cooperate with others, and care about each other. Summer Child Care is for youth who are coming out of Kindergarten through 6th Grade. Our Summer Enrichment Program will have a location at the YMCA, Adams Central Elementary, and Lincoln Elementary.

Our Summer Enrichment Program includes cooperative play, enrichment activities, scientific exploration, sports, active play, STEM programs, arts and crafts, cooking 101, swimming, field trips, outside adventures, and so much more!

"I love that you guys have this program so that my kids can still hang out with their friends and do something else fun over the summer. I also love the after school program as well because my kids love to hang out with the staff. There is amazing staff for the program."
- Jessica Moreno
