The countdown to summer is on and kids aren’t the only ones looking forward to the summer months. The Woodruff Family YMCA, a Branch of the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA, is getting ready for an influx of programming and activities that stimulate both mind and body, in an effort to help children have an amazing summer.
“It’s important that children both play and learn throughout the summer,” says Nicole Servas, Senior Program Director. “From summer camp to swim lessons, the Y is able to support all children in the community helping them discover and reach their full potential.”
Day camp at the Y provides kids with adventure, healthy fun, personal growth and friendships that can take a so-so summer and turn it into a memory that lasts a lifetime. The Woodruff Family Y camps provide a welcoming environment for kids where they can belong, build relationships, develop character and discover their potential.
Since summer is synonymous with swim season, the Y encourages families to explore the benefits of swimming while also keeping safety top of mind. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to help their children learn fundamental water safety and swimming skills.
Whether it’s helping children read, keeping kids safe around water, or keeping them active and engaged throughout the summer, the Y has a program to benefit all youth in the community. For more information, contact the Woodruff Family YMCA at 203 878 6501 or visit cccymca.org.
