Welcome to Community Connections

Wyckoff YMCA at Home!

A Letter From Our Director

Dear Friends,
     
     The Wyckoff Family YMCA Community is a shared experience; it is encouragement and support, it's the strength of many, and sometimes the comfort of a few. It is the Community that is always there for us through all stages of life, as we periodically re-invent ourselves, set new priorities for a brighter future, and sometimes need to seek some sense out of confusion and uncertainty.
 
     As the entire world "holds its breath" for the next few weeks, please lean on us for friendship and support.  Even though our doors are temporarily closed, the Staff and I are here to answer any of your questions and concerns, or just lend a  helping hand. The Wyckoff Y has never been centered around bricks and mortar.  Our focus is people; and how we can support their fighting spirit, their caring hearts and their kind ways.
 
     Within this publication, I hope you will find the benefit of being a vital part of our Family, and feel welcome to share your feelings, thoughts, and experiences during this hopefully once-in-a-lifetime time period.
 
     But, most importantly, Members, thank you for your continued loyalty and belief in our mission. Please know how much we count on you for your support as we navigate through these difficult waters.  Lets "stick together" and together we will triumph!
 
With Gratitude,
Joy

CAMP HOMEPAGE

The “CAMP LIFE” includes:

This Summer come to Camp Wydaca and focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility, while enriching the Spirit, Mind, and Body.

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Join us throughout the summer months to cultivate values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and lifelong friendships.

A wide range of activities that encourage learning and creativity to meet the needs of every child. Campers participate in Instructional and Free Swim, exercise through Sports and Games, channel creativity through Arts and Crafts, share experiences in Activity/Choice Time, and of course, take a break for Lunch.

Specialty Camps participate in Free Swim, Instructional Swim, and Lunch, along with their specialty of choice. Campers improve their skills with an in depth look to become the best Artist, Performer, Chef, Scientist, or Athlete they can be! Impactful, adventurous field trips, on-site educational assemblies, and jam-packed Fun Fridays, help expand and round out the Camp Wydaca experience.

Online Registration Open and Promotions Available!

SUMMER PROGRAMMING - So much to choose from!

Our Team is excited to announce our Summer Program Offerings!  

We can’t wait and are hopeful for the sunny days ahead! 

Whether your child is looking to make new friends, improve sports skills, learn to dance, or just have a great time, the Y has the answer! Each and every Program Class centers on our five-character development traits of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.  We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That's why, through the Y, thousands of Youth today are cultivating the skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement.  

In communities across the Nation, the YMCA is a leading voice on health and well-being.  With a mission centered on balance, we bring families closer together, encourage good health, and foster connections through fitness, sports, and shared interests. As a result, families are receiving the support, guidance, and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind, and body.  Explore our variety of programs below and become a part of our Y family!
