Kids at Darien YMCA Camp

I wanted to give a shout out to the Y and personally thank you for running camps this summer.

My 5 year old son attended the full day Summer Fun camp for 7 weeks, and it was the absolute best thing for him, especially after having no programming for the spring. He looked forward to going every single day and that is saying a lot! He loved being with Ms Tanya & his classmates and came home with a smile on his face!

It was also such a good way to prepare him for kindergarten and gives us peace of mind that he will handle the transition more easily & do well in a classroom environment.

I know it might not have been an easy decision whether to run camps, but I am so grateful to the Y for offering summer programming.

Best regards,

Jennifer Keehlwetter

Great work out today!  It’s has been nice to get back to a workout routine at the Y the past couple of months.  The Tuesday and Thursday workouts have been challenging as well as diverse, and I appreciate the adjustments you made to the program.  Most importantly, we feel safe getting back to the Y, and you and the staff have done a great job in complying with distancing guidelines.  I look forward to ramping the program as we move forward – except for the burpees!  🙂

Thank you so much, Amy!
I’ve only been a member for a few months, and I am so glad to have joined the Darien Y. The facilities are fantastic, super clean, going above and beyond with COVID safety protocols. The lifeguard staff is also fantastic. Super friendly and attentive 🙂
