The Y encourages parents to sign up kids for summer camp

This summer, The Meadowlands Area YMCA’s Summer Day Camp program is offering kids an enriching, learning experience to help them get more out of summer break – more friendships, more accomplishments and more belonging. Through a mix of fun and educational activities aimed at improving well-being, kids will experience new adventures, learn and master new skills, share and trade interests with friends, exchanging plenty of high-fives along the way. Summer Camp “With school out during the summer, many kids don’t get enough physical activity or learning—a critical gap the Y is addressing,” says Jane Egan, CEO at our summer camp, kids are in a safe environment with nurturing adults where they feel welcome, develop character and explore new talents and interests to reach their potential. We want to ensure that kids in our 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.” When kids are out of school, they can face hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential, related to hunger, water safety, academics, safe spaces to play, and health. Through summer camp and other youth development programs, nationwide the Y helps over 9 million youth to “hop the gap” and achieve more, providing a safe to place to learn, stay healthy and build friendships.
