school-age all day programming

YKids is a full-day program we offer at a daily rate when school is not in session due planned school’s out days! During School Breaks, we offer a full-day program at a weekly rate, this allows us to plan for an entire week of fun and adventure for those extended days away from school. (Please note: We will not offer all day programming if a school requires children to quarantine due to a Covid-19 exposure)

Don’t let your kids miss out on the social enrichment, peer interaction, and physical activity the Y is known for. These days away from school will be filled with day-camp-like activities, crafts, STEM, team building and more. Due to inconsistencies in school district closures, we may have to cancel programming at certain locations due to low enrollment

Tiered Pricing:

The YMCA of Southern Arizona has created a tiered pricing structure to accommodate all families during these challenging time. Please take a moment to look at the rate descriptions below and determine which of the three prices your family is able to pay for your child’s camp experience. Price selection is done strictly on an honor system. If you can afford to pay the full fee (Tier A), please do so. If you cannot, simply select the price which is right for your family’s circumstances. There is no difference in the camp experience for campers registered at different tiers and tier selection is kept confidential.

If you receive reimbursement from a 3rd party agency such as DES, proper authorization is required before registering.  Click here for more information.
