But this is the case for different reasons. Parents are concerned with ensuring that their children are safe, supervised, and engaged in activities that keep their minds and bodies active when school lets out for the summer. Youngsters eagerly anticipate the free time, and simply want to have fun and learn something new.  The Meadowlands Area YMCA day camp and Specialty Camp programs offer a solution designed to keep everyone happy this summer.

 “Gone are the days when day camp meant simply tying knots or making pot holders,” said Mrs. Amelia Griffiths, YMCA Child Care Director  “Today, summer day camp programs at the Meadowlands Area YMCA are as unique as the campers themselves. We still provide arts and crafts, but we also offer kids exceptional opportunities to enjoy activities and resources that are often unavailable to them during the school year.”
  In addition to the range of activities offered at day camp, parents also have the flexibility of enrolling their youngsters during sessions that suit their needs. For example, if a parent only wants a child to participate three days a week, our day camp can accommodate that schedule. “YMCA programs are designed to meet the needs and schedules of today’s busy families,” Mrs. Griffiths added. YMCA day camp programs are always designed to provide opportunities for physical activity. This is vital due to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting that 9 million young people between the ages of 6 and 19 are overweight and on a very unhealthy path to adulthood.Picture 061 “The number of overweight children in the U.S. has more than doubled since 1980. Increasing the levels of physical activity in the lives of our children is a critical component of this country’s efforts to help children get healthier,” Sheila Dunn, Family Wellness Director said. “No other organization is better positioned to help young people get healthier and feel connected to their communities during summer months than The Meadowlands Area YMCA.  We encourage parents and kids to experience our longstanding commitment to strengthening the spirits minds and bodies of kids firsthand.”  Visit www.YMCAinfo.org or call 201 955-5300 to learn more about our day camp for youth and teens.
