Spotlight on Kinder Camp
By Yanique Powell, School Age Childcare and Kinder Camp Director
It may be hard to believe, but summer camp is just around the corner! The Rye Y Kinder Camp is designed just for campers age 3-6. The camp provides a warm, supportive experience for first time campers, as well as a stepping stone for campers heading into Pre-School or Kindergarten. Campers develop new friendships, discover and strengthen physical capabilities, learn cooperation and teamwork and most important - have fun!

Each week is filled with amusing themes, entertaining guests, music, crafts, sports, swim lessons and more!  Kinder Camp is led by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic "role models" who are eager to spend the summer with your camper. Half day and full day available. S
pace is limited, so if you haven't already done so, register now. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
