Once only available to Kids Club After School program participants, we are pleased to announce that Vacation Camp is now available to all school-age students in the local area, including non-members.

Vacation camp takes place at the Y or the Community Church of Mountain Lakes, when the normal school day is not in session. Schedules will be posted when the school year begins.

New! Vacation Camp for Elementary School Students!

During these sessions we follow a theme day schedule with structured activities from 9:30 am until 4 pm. The hours of 7:30-9:30 am and 4:00-6:00 pm are recreational play periods consisting of board games and other fun activities for the children. Morning specialties include: Healthy U, CATCH: Coordinated Approach to Child Health, S.T.E.M., Arts & Crafts, Character Counts, Swimming, Sports & Games, and more.
