The Y's summer child care programs located in Rome, Oneida and New Hartford provide an array of options to interest every child. We value the unique personalities and potential of every child. Summer care creates an environment where kids can be themselves, explore exciting new things, cultivate friendships, and create lasting memories. Through fun activities, our staff will teach your child to discover the outdoors, build skills, and work as part of a team. The experiences they enjoy will have a lasting impact on their lives as they begin to imagine and explore life around them. Our four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility are essential parts of all our programs. We follow the YMCA mission of providing programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic and the extended closure of the YMCA facility- we have a limited capacity for our Summer Child Care program this year.  We are only accepting full-time registrations (children that are attending Monday-Friday, full days).  Open spots will be prioritized to those that are attending full time and are paid in-full, weekly.  In addition, we have a limited ability to accept DSS and financial assistance participants.  We are working hard to be able to accommodate as many children as possible while meeting our mission.

Licensed Full Day Child Care

Our full day child care programs meet New York State licensing requirements, which focus on health, safety, and program quality. We are committed to providing a wide variety of experiences to all participants. Weekly activities will include games, outdoor activities, art projects, quiet reading time,sports, nature, and more!

Our Staff

All of our staff members go through an in-depth interview and a complete background check before being hired. As role models, staff members are selected for sound judgment, maturity, experience, enthusiasm, and creativity. Training occurs both before and throughout the summer to ensure staff members are providing the best possible experience for campers. All staff members are also certified in First Aid and CPR.
