The Y operates a 10-week Summer Enrichment Program at the Hornell YMCA and a 6-week Summer Enrichment Program at the Whitesville Central School. These are NYS-licensed programs developed by the Y to foster a child's personal, physical, and emotional growth. A nutritious snack is served daily the Hornell City School District provides free lunch for 8 weeks of the Hornell Summer program. Children must be enrolled in Kindergarten through 12 years of age.
YMCA Summer Enrichment provides positive outcomes through play with an emphasis on social-emotional growth. Our quality staff will guide them through outdoor activities, swimming, sports, arts & crafts, games, STEM activities, field trips, and summer adventures. We know how important it is to get kids back out to nature and interacting with their friends. Weekly themes allow participants to practice leadership skills, critical thinking skills, be a part of a team, and develop lifelong friendships. These programs encourage children to build friendships with other children from different areas and backgrounds, foster self-confidence and independence, and allow each child to learn the importance of caring and sharing with others. In addition, participants gain an understanding of the YMCA's character development values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.
OUR PROMISE TO PARENTS:
Your kids will be safe, make new friends, learn new skills, and most of all, have fun!
