The Y is Giving Kids Their Best Summer Ever!
The Randolph YMCAs day camps offer a mix of fun and educational activities aimed at improving kids’ well-being. The Y's program centers on three areas proven to impact kids’ development: friendship, accomplishment and belonging.
Nine weekly sessions begin June 27 with different camps for children from three years old to teens held in Randolph and Long Valley, with extended care available for many camps.
We, Me, You Summer Fun Club for children ages three to five is available with full and half day options. Campers will enjoy exciting activities such as sports, gymnastics and arts & crafts, as well as swim instruction and pool activities three times per week. Trips and guest speakers are part of each week's program.
Camp Wide Horizons is for children entering first through fourth grades and is held at the Y in Randolph. Campers will enjoy sports, gymnastics, crafts, music and science. Swimming lessons are provided three days a week. New for 2015 is the addition of dance and karate from experts in the field. Archery will be a weekly addition for third and fourth graders. Each week will have a new theme, trips and guest speakers such as Snakes 'n Scales Reptiles.
Youth Adventure Camp for campers entering fifth through tenth grades will be held at Hedden Park with swimming two times per week at the Randolph YMCA. Campers will learn the values of diversity while having fun in a supervised, caring environment. In addition to arts and crafts, hiking, games and sports, campers with enjoy two field trips per week.
High Schoolers in ninth and tenth grades can become part of the Counselor-in-training program, where they will learn to be camp counselors. Interviews with Lynn Molitoris, CIT Director, are required to enter this program.
Specialty sports camps and clinics for many age groups in basketball, junior lifeguarding, youth summer fitness classes and individual and small group sport-specific training will be offered this summer.
“At the Y, we know that when kids are given an opportunity to accomplish new skills, make friends and feel like they belong, they are comfortable expressing individuality and feel more
confident, connected and supported,” says Bill Lamia, CEO of the Randolph YMCA. “We are focusing on these youth development areas to ensure that kids in our day camp program go home with so much excitement for all they’ve accomplished and enjoyed that they can’t wait to come back the next day.”
