At the YMCA Kids Club Summer Parks & Recreation Program, kids ages 6-18 years spend their days taking part in a wide variety of summer play and learning activities while building a healthy spirit, mind and body. Each day, Y staff leads hands-on activities such as small group games, board games, fitness and art and music. A hula hoop instructor will visit each park once per week to teach a “hoop” class. Before they know it, the day is done and they’ve made a new friend.
