When summer is fast approaching, many working parents begin to have concerns on what they are going to do with their young children for two to three months that is both safe and fun. Summer camps are great options, but they often only last one week and are far away from where they normally live. What parents really need in Owensboro, Kentucky is a program close to home that lasts most of the summer. Fortunately for parents, the YMCA of Owensboro offers a program that is exactly that.
If you have a child from the age of 4 to 13 with their immunization records then they will qualify to join in on these high value camps that meet in various places around the city (depending on your child’s age). The cost is $67 a week and it covers the hours from 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM, but early drop off rates are available as well. If you don’t need the program every day during the week then you can pay $47 which covers your child for up to 3 days. The best part of the payment program is the fact that you can pay on a weekly basis, meaning you don’t have to pay for the entire summer. This is a very good thing for most kids as families normally have planned summer vacations where there is no need for this summer program during certain weeks.
Kids will have the opportunity to play games and swim every day if these so choose. Ping pong and pool tables are available in the front game room in the main YMCA center off of Frederica Street behind Kentucky Wesleyan College. The price includes the lunch and snacks as well during the day. As far as value of summer camps go, there really is no beating the program that the YMCA offers. It is a much safer alternative then leaving your kids at home during the summer to fend for themselves. Applications are available online or at either of the two YMCA sites in Owensboro, Kentucky. Pick one up today and help your child experience a summer full of activity instead of days full of watching TV.
