Summer Power Kindergarten is a full-day, fun-filled program where children make new friends, develop healthy eating habits, get plenty of physical activity and learn new things through play. They’ll explore their world in small groups through age and developmentally appropriate activities.
Special themes guide weekly features and field trips as kids explore zoos, museums and parks. Trained YMCA staff emulate healthy behavior and provide responsible and secure supervision at all times.
