With guidance from local and state health authorities, the Summit Area YMCA will be operating summer camp in a limited capacity beginning July 6. Keeping your child safe remains our #1 priority. We will share any changes/updates with participants registered for camp as additional information is available.

    Should you have specific questions in response to these changes, please contact us.



    The Learning Circle YMCA will open on June 15. Summer Camp will open July 6. The Summit YMCA and Berkeley Heights YMCA are still closed and all memberships/programming/events are temporarily on hold until further notice. We expect to share re-opening details as soon as they are available.


    Be healthy and well. We're looking forward to welcoming you back soon!
