Winter Break Camp at the YMCA
Gaining new experiences and making new friends are just some of the benefits of participating in the YMCA of Southern Indiana’s Wild West Winterland: Winter Break Camp Dec. 24 to Jan. 4.
As winter break approaches, the YMCA of Southern Indiana reminds parents that day camp is a unique and invaluable experience for children to learn outside of school and develop new skills. Amidst the fun of games, songs, swimming and field trips, campers will meet new friends.
There will be no camp on Dec. 25 or Jan. 1.
Financial assistance to cover the cost of Winter Break Camp is available to those in need. To learn more about our winter break camp, visit ymcasi.org or contact our School-Age Child Care Director Meredith Clipp-Rodriquez, at 812-283-9622 x115 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
