Y on the Fly

Our Y on the Fly program seeks to bring a "Y without walls" programming experience directly to communities outside of the Y's current service areas and will allow our association to serve more neighborhoods and more children and families than ever before. 

For more information about Y on the Fly and how to get involved, please contact:

Scholastic Mobile Learning Center - Camp on the Fly

This summer—more than ever—kids need to get outside, get active and put down devices! Camp on the Fly offers one of the most powerful learning environments and can be a place where a child’s social education and independence takes place – right in their own backyard. It provides youth with the opportunity to try new activities and when they succeed—they build self-esteem and confidence. Children also build on their teamwork and problem-solving skills by being part of a supportive community and partaking in activities together.
Although still structured, Camp on the Fly is more relaxed than the school routine and offers time and freedom for spontaneous play. The Y provides healthy eating, physical activity, academic enrichment, arts and crafts, swimming, and much more! Campers are challenged and encouraged to grow every day by nurturing, caring adults, who practice the Y’s Character Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Counselors are well-trained professionals and lead campers in a safe and healthy environment. Yes, all activities are planned with social distancing in mind!
Kids will love being out of the house for a couple of days a week at Camp on the Fly!
