YMCA of the Capital Area Newsletter Y Connection - July 2018

Summer Camp 2018
Campers are enjoying a busy summer full of activities and new experiences. Here's what campers had to say about their experience while having the Best Summer Ever!
"My favorite part about summer camp is not knowing what we are going to do every day." Nick, age 11
"I love coming to camp because we do different things than what we could be doing at home." Ethan, age 11
"My favorite part of summer camp is swimming every day" Amiyah, age 6
Swim lessons provide important life-saving skills that could prevent a tragic accident from occuring in the water. The Y provides lessons for anyone 6 months of age and older, and all YMCA swim instructors are nationally certified in CPR, AED, First Aid and Oxygen Administration. Through the Y’s swim lesson curriculum, participants can improve their skills, build their confidence and enjoy learning to swim. Register online or in-person at the Y.
Registration for fall soccer and flag football will open July 16. Soccer is offered for children ages 3-12, and flag football will be offered for children ages 5-12. In Y sports there are no tryouts and all players have the opportunity for equal playing time in games, teaching children valuable social and teamwork skills.Click here to register online.
We are focused on helping you meet your goals through our creative wellness challenges. Our new challenge, Fit in 6, is a six-week challenge that will help you to stay on track and meet your fitness goals. Earn points, win prizes, get healthy! Sign up today at the front desk.
