Get ready for games and outdoor play with summer day camp registration now open at the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties.
After last year’s COVID-19 closures, the Y is offering more summer day camps so more kids can enjoy off-screen time with friends and healthy activities.
“We’re excited to welcome kids back! We’re here for all kids for fun, friendships and a sense of belonging,” said Diane Jackson, marketing and development director at the Y. “There is nothing like seeing a child beaming after qualifying to swim in the deep end or making a friend while learning to play soccer.”
Registration is open for the week-long day camps. Families can sign up for one week or register for every week through the summer.
Day camp does not require Y membership. Scholarships are available to Y members, and the middle school academy program is free.
Most day camp sessions begin June 28. Sessions are available for ages 5-13, and a half-day program is offered for ages 3-4.
Families can choose from day camp sessions offered at all seven Y family centers, select public schools in Pierce and Kitsap counties and Lake Helena in Port Orchard. For kids entering grades 6-8, the four-week Summer Learning Academy is available at four Tacoma middle schools.
