Summer Power is a super-lively, full-day enrichment program focused on quality, small group, age-appropriate activities. We provide a Healthy Living experience for kids by educating on healthy foods choices and the right balance of physical activity. Kids stay motivated, entertained and are encouraged to make choices and exercise independent thinking.

Each week is packed with an amazing variety of activities including multiple field trips to exciting places. Not only are the kids entertained and engaged, they’re learning new things, developing a healthy lifestyle and making new friends.

No two weeks are alike! Some of the popular things your kids will enjoy every week are:

  • Arts & Humanities – creative projects and learning through the arts
  • Science Projects – fun and learning through hands-on exploration
  • Health & Fitness – staying fit, healthy and strong while having a blast
  • Large-group Games – playing Capture The Flag, Kickball, Scavenger Hunts and other popular kids’ games and sports.
  • Values-strengthening Activities – projects, skits and more to help the YMCA values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility come to life
  • Service Projects – having fun while helping others
  • Water Activities – trips to pools, water parks and other wet and wild fun
  • Wonderful Spaces – multiple outdoor and indoor areas enhance summer activities 

Intriguing weekly themes guide engaging activities and give kids topics to look forward to. Trained YMCA staff provides supervision, care and guidance for participants in this unrivaled summer program. It’s honest-to-goodness fun!
