Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have had to make changes to our camp offerings for 2020 and this particular camp will no longer be offered this summer. New safety measures are being implemented and we encourage you to sign up for our Youth Day Camp instead of this particular camp for 2020; we look forward to offering this camp in 2021!
Become a babysitting expert and join us for this fun and educational camp that will teach you everything you need to know about caring for kids. Campers will learn how to feed a baby, how to properly change a diaper, how to perform CPR and First Aid on children, and other important skills necessary to babysit and create the safest experience for the children in their care. Campers will gain firsthand experience volunteering in the YMCA Child Watch. Upon successful completion, campers will receive an American Red Cross Babysitting Basics, CPR, and First Aid Certifications.
Full-day campers are provided with free breakfast, lunch and snack each day.
Registration is now open! Camps do fill up and we recommend you sign up early, and pay non-refundable, non-transferable $10 deposits for each camp week you know your child will be attending in order to reserve a spot. Registration must be completed by the Wednesday before the camp week begins.
At the Y, we think summer fun, new friends and positive role models should be available to every child. That's why we provide scholarships to families who need help making camp a reality. If your family needs a little help, scholarships are available at our Membership Desk at the Nir Family YMCA and Midtown YMCA and are kept completely confidential. Funds are made possible because of the generous donations made through our Annual Giving Campaign. You can send a child to camp by making a tax-deductible gift online to the Y's Annual Giving Campaign.
