COVID-19 Safety Precautions & Guidelines: At the YMCA, safety is our number one priority. We are committed to operating programs that adhere to all Public Safety rules, regulations and guidelines to ensure that all children, staff, parents, guardians and authorized representatives are safe, while at the YMCA! For Summer Child Care Programs, our ratios are 1 YMCA staff member for everyone 10 children, with a maximum of 10 children per room. For our Summer Day Camp programs, our ratios are 1 YMCA staff member for every 12 children, with a maximum of 12 children per room. For Summer Day Camps that are 100% outdoors (such as Simon Meadow), physical distancing and group separation will be maintained. In addition, the YMCA has developed a full curriculum for the summer, that includes activities designed to maintain physical distancing, while having fun! For everyone’s safety, field trips, recreational swimming, swim lessons, outside vendors or visitors and beach/aquatics trips will not be a part of the program.
Program Closures & Cancellations Due to Low Enrollment: COVID-19 has presented some unique challenges. As the YMCA works to revive Summer Day Camp & Summer Child Care programs, it is important that YMCA programs remain viable so that they can continue to operate. The YMCA reserves the right to close and cancel any program that is not meeting its minimum enrollment requirements. If a program session or a complete program needs to close, the YMCA will make every attempt to notify the parent/guardian or authorized representative as soon as possible so that other arrangements can be made.
