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!  🙂
