Summer Program

We’re happy to report that CYC is definitely operating a summer program this year!  However, this program will not look like the traditional summer day camp we’ve offered in the past. This year’s program will be based on CDC guidelines as well as suggested community need.

DATES:  June 22nd – August 21st

HOURS: 7:30am-5:30pm

SITES:    North Colonie: 15 Avis Drive (wait list only)
                  South Colonie: Sand Creek Middle School

AGES:       Children must have completed kindergarten and be between the ages of 5 and 12

FEES:     $210.00/week (except June 29-July 2 (closed July 3rd): $168.00 per child)

 

ACTIVITIES: There will be no field trips as we are unable to maintain social distance guidelines on school buses. Instead there will be theme weeks centered around learning through play. Themes may include science fun, literacy games, math Olympics, geography journeys, and fitness frenzy. Outdoor space will be utilized to provide many activities, but unfortunately we will not have use of playground equipment as those areas remain closed at this time. We’re also working with some vendors for curbside pick-up activities or outside adventure to provide additional variety.

 SAFETY: Every effort will be made to adhere to CDC recommendations for social distancing and sanitation. Participants will be divided into smaller groups of no more than 8 with 1-2 staff members which will rotate throughout the camp space. Staff will wear face coverings while the choice for participants will be at the discretion of the parent/guardian. Staff and participants will engage in recommended hand washing guidelines throughout program hours. Lunches will be eaten in the small groups and outside whenever possible. Tables will be sanitized regularly throughout the day and program equipment will be sanitized daily.  Parent pick-up and drop-off will take place outside of the buildings.
