For Parents

IMPORTANT: Our Summer Camp will be held June 15-July 31 at our Southeast Y only limited to 125 campers each week. Due to Governor Holcomb’s “Back on Track” guidelines for Indiana and Monroe County’s extended Stay-at-Home Order issued by the Monroe County Health Department, gyms were able to re-open on June 1. As opposed to re-opening our facilities and starting the camp season simultaneously, we are proceeding with a slow re-opening with camp beginning on June 15. Please refer to our FAQs below regarding details on camp credits, refunds, our updated health and safety protocols, and more.

As we continue to receive summer programming directives from our local government, health department, and CDC, our camps are subject to change. We will update our camps as necessary and notify you of any changes as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience as we work through these unprecedented times!


Summer Camp Updates - COVID-19 Response

Thank you for your patience as we continue to determine how the Monroe County Y Summer Camp will look this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We have been researching best practices to ensure the health of our staff and campers. While we want to still provide a summer camp experience this year, we must proceed with extreme caution based on the guidelines established by the CDC, Monroe County Health Department, our insurance company, and Y-USA. Based on these directives, this means we are holding a restructered Summer Camp at our Southeast Y only with a delayed start date. Our Summer Camps at our Northwest Y and Gymnastics Center are all cancelled. Please refer to the FAQs below on what that means for you if you were already enrolled in now cancelled camps.

Parent Resources
You will find all the information you need to know regarding Summer Camp at the Southeast Y in our Parent Guide! And, please make sure to familiarize yourself with our brand new drop-off and pick-up procedure prior to your first day of camp.

Updated Drop-Off & Pick-Up Procedure

Please enter the Y at the top parking lot near Winslow Park. You should then cautiously drive down the hill toward the soccer parking lot and make an immediate right at the bottom of the hill. Follow the cars in front of you as they circle around and pull up next to the soccer field. We'll have signage and staff directing you where to go. A lead counselor will come to your car to perform a health questionnaire and temperature check of your camper prior to leaving the car. Our pick-up procedure is very similar. 

On rainy days, parents will need to drop off or pick up their camper at the front of the Y building on rainy days. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we implement the new procedures! Please refer to our handouts and maps, linked below, for more details.
