The Young Explorers


The Young Explorers is a first summer experience for preschool children to participate in an encouraging and supportive environment with nurturing teachers and a full time nurse on duty. Each week the explorers will investigate a new theme in a fun, exciting way that combines special activities, on-site events, programs and the occasional field trip. The children will frequent the Summit YMCA for swimming, enjoy daily playground time and water-play.

TLC Camps are full day, month-long camps. Price includes healthy meals (breakfast, lunch, snacks) and any field trips or enrichment programs.

Registration for TLC Summer Camps are only accepted in person at The Learning Circle YMCA. Please note: Early bird pricing does not apply to Summer Camps at The Learning Circle YMCA.
