YOUTH PROGRAMS AND CHILD CARE

With so many demands on today's families and the increased focus on early childhood development, families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. We support children by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That's why our child care programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other.

NO SCHOOL/EARLY RELEASE

When school's out of session or let's out early, don't worry about where your kids will be. At the Y we offer Vacation Days for those No School days and Early Release care when the schools let out early. Your children will be looked after by trained, caring youth development staff. 

CAMP CADILLAC

Let your child's summer be filled with exploration, new friendships, and a host of memories. Camp Cadillac is the MDI Y's summer day camp. 

Unfortunately, the Mount Desert Island YMCA is unable to offer overnight camp. If you are interested in sending your child to an overnight camp that's YMCA run, please check out Camp Jordan which is run by the Bangor YMCA or the YMCA Camp of Maine.
