Sign Up Now for the Family Y’s February School Break Programs

Planning a “staycation” for the upcoming Winter School  Break, the week of Feb. 20-24? Then have your kids climb our walls, not yours, by signing them up for one of our popular school vacation programs. Note that our Hafaday Swim Lesson Program for the Winter Break is fully booked — but there’s still space in our April School Break program. For details, click here.

Vacation Gymnastics
Children ages six and up can learn and improve gymnastics skills during the Winter School Break at our afternoon Vacation Gymnastics and Swim program, held daily from 12 to 4 pm. A free swim is included each day. Bring a snack and a drink, and please be aware that children must be able to swim without a flotation device to participate. The cost is $165 for the week; $40 per day. (No Y membership is required.) To register, please click here.

School Age Vacation Special
Family Y After School programs provide a safe, fun and educational environment for 1st through 5th grade children from the time the school day ends until 6:00 pm. We offer After-School Programs for all Westport and Weston students. Held at Long Lots elementary school, the program includes gym time and outdoor play, art activities, table games and, importantly, homework help. There’s also a free swim weekly at the Y.

When school is in recess, like the upcoming Winter Break, our School Age Vacation Special program provides days packed with fun activities for 1st through 6th grade children and takes place at the Family Y.
