Go For Green Lessons

Water safety is built into our programs. All YMCA day camp participants receives a swim test while they are in our care. If a day camper doesn’t initially pass the swim test, we offer lessons during their day camp week so they can Go for Green! Even better, lessons through day camp are FREE for 1st graders.
