Best Summer Ever!

Gift The Gift Of Summer Fun

At the YMCA of Greenwich, we believe every family should have access to the youth programs we offer throughout the summer, regardless of their financial circumstance. Camp, swim lessons, and sports camps are just some of the activities that keep kids and families engaged, active, and having fun at the Y throughout the summer. Donating to our Annual Campaign helps us provides these programs and services to everyone in our community. 

What Your Gift Provides

Affordable Summer Child Care

Last year, 1 in 2 campers and 65% of the children in our after school enrichment program received financial assistance. Summer camp scholarships ensure that all the families in our community have access to safe and accessible child care during the summer months.


"Summer Slide" Prevention

The average student loses 1-2 months of math and reading skills over the summer, also known as the “summer slide”. Enrichment activities provided at camp, such as reading and STEM projects, significantly contribute to a child’s academic achievement, ensuring they don’t fall behind during the summer months.


Water Safety Skills & Practice

In our waterfront community, it’s extremely important that all children have the opportunity to learn life-saving, critical water safety skills. During summer swim lessons and at camp, kids get the opportunity to learn water safety skills and build confidence in the water through swim lessons and free swim time.


A Summer of Fun & Exploration

At YMCA summer camp, children play outside, make friends, and take weekly field trips to places like the beach, the park, the aquarium, and more! In Youth Programs, children learn new sports, express themselves through art & dance, and develop new skills. Our summer scholarship program supports a child having a summer filled with the opportunity to explore and have fun.
