As Heard On Mike And Tricia Mornings: YWCA Talks Summer Camps
Summer can be a stressful time for parents because they have to worry about what their kids will be doing while they're at work. That's why Mike and Tricia Mornings is helping out with What To Do With Your Kids During Summer Week.
YWCA has been keeping kids occupied during the summer months for decades. This year is no different. The YWCA has five locations around town where your kiddos can go to summer camp. The YWCA says their summer camps work to prevent “summer slide” by providing opportunities for children to have fun, educational and productive summers. Campers participate in a STEAM project-based curriculum designed to complement what they learned in school and prepare them for the coming year. Students will play math games, do science and engineering projects, have playtime, make creative projects, and swim.
The YWCA also provides nutritious, home-cooked meals and snacks. Their staff members are all CPR and First-Aid certified and trained in safety, supervision, decision making, and problem solving.
You can go online to register and pay for camps. If you are registering or paying for online for a YWCA Summer Camp for the first time, you need to get login credentials from the academy director. You can call these numbers to get that credential:

If you are interested in swimming lessons for your kids, you can log onto the YWCA website for more information. There are private and group lessons available. Each class focuses on helping children master basic swim strokes and master new skills before advancing to a new level. All trainers are certified swim instructors with lower class size ratios.
