Our Family Y offers all kinds of summertime fun for your children. Now’s the time to sign up — camps are filling up fast, with some sessions already on wait list!
In addition to the classic outdoor fun in store for day campers at Camp Mahackeno, we also have a wide variety of summer programs at our downtown home.
The Hafaday Summer Swim Lesson Program gives kids ages 4 to 8 expert swim instruction along with a morning of great fun. Plus, this summer we have added Stewie’s Splash! Hour to this popular camp.
But did you know about all our other sports, dance and specialty camps that take place throughout the summer at our downtown (and air-conditioned) facility?
And don’t miss out on the chance to enroll your 1st-3rd grader in a wonderful new (and free) weeklong swimming and water-safety program: ZAC Camp at Mahackeno, June 4-8, 3:30-6:30 each day. Space is limited, so please call Camp Director Meg George at 203-226-8981, ext. 179 to register your child today.
This year, each week of the Family Y’s Camp Mahackeno will have a specific theme. All of your favorite summer day-camp activities will still be there, as well as some exciting new opportunities, like our brand-new 110-ft. Zipline.
But this summer campers will have even more fun with weekly themes, which will include special events, dress-up days and games going on all week. The weekly themes during each of our four two-week sessions are:
Session 1 June 25-July 6
