Just because school is out doesn’t mean children have to experience summer learning loss. Summer is the perfect time to nurture children’s natural curiosity and encourage them to explore new interests. Frost Valley YMCA offers several upcoming specialty day camps including: Happy Hikers, Sports of All Sorts, Mountain Toppers, Sports Sampler, Saddle Up, Maker’s Lab, and Farm Camp.
