Summer Uproar is a full-day, experience-based enrichment program that encourages older kids to explore, increase understanding, build independence and most importantly, have fun! We provide a Healthy Living experience for kids by educating on healthy food choices and the right balance of physical activity. Uproar brings a multitude of character development experiences to kids through community involvement, leadership activities, team building exercises, goal setting and more. Days are filled with field trips, outings to amusement and water parks, and fun group activities that exercise the body, challenge the mind and nurture the spirit of our youth.

NOTE: Summer Uproar activities vary by YMCA branch and program location. A detailed schedule will be available in the spring.
