Golden Mountain Summer Program
Children have a blast while enhancing their understanding of the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. They engage in character-building activities including community exploration, arts and crafts, iPlay, swimming and hands-on enrichment programs. The program builds positive relationships, enhances social interactions and strengthens self-esteem and confidence, as well as builds leadership skills. Children have fun and grow as life-long learners in a positive, caring and safe environment. Key program elements include literacy and summer learning, creative arts, field trips, sports, games and aquatics.
