GREATER WICHITA YMCA 

FUN CLUB - SCHEDULED SCHOOL CLOSING COVERAGE

Designed to make scheduled school closures easier for parents and more active, engaging, and enjoyable for kids, The Greater Wichita YMCA's FUN CLUB day- and week-long "camp" programs offer ALL students (ages 5-12, enrolled in Kindergarten-and-up) from ANY school district to participate in a safe, supervised environment (at our branch locations and host schools) for a full day or week of fun and games, educational activities, arts and crafts, and more.

There are TWO types of FUN CLUB camps:SCHOOL DAY OUT (day-long programs) and BREAK CLUBS (week-long programs with daily registration available). Both offer:

  • Registration for children ages 5-12, enrolled in Kindergarten or higher
  • Convenient locations near home and work including Y branches and host school sites
  • Open coverage from 6:30AM-6PM (unless otherwise noted - see registration forms for details)
  • Income-based pricing, "scholarships", and third-party payment options available to all
  • A mixture of active and restful play and seasonal activities that engage kids in mind, and body
  • The promise of a Y-Program where respect, honesty, and caring are taught and observed
  • Nutritious breakfast and afternoon snacks for participants (all kids must bring their own lunch daily)
  • Certified and trained staff working in a licensed child care environment
