The Young Explorers



JULY & AUGUST | 7:30AM-6:00PM | AGES 3-4

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 and programs. Children will frequent the Summit YMCA for swimming, enjoy daily playground time and water play.

TLC Camps are full day, month-long camps, operating 5 days per week. Price includes healthy meals (breakfast, lunch, snacks) and any field trips or enrichment programs.


Please note, safety policies and procedures for Summer Camps at The Learning Circle YMCA are under guidance of the New Jersey Department of Children and Families Office of Licensing and Department of Health. Should any Covid-related mandates return, The Learning Circle YMCA's hours of operation, fees and program offerings may be subject to change. Rest assured, providing a safe space for your child is our priority. For the most up to date information regarding our participation and safety policies, contact us directly to speak with the Program Director.
