The Cambridge YMCA’s Summer Program provides structured, fun-filled activities and outings to local parks, as well as weekly field trips to museums, movies, beaches, and other exciting locations in the Boston/Cambridge area.*

Our teachers are from diverse specializations and backgrounds and are able to create a wide variety of activities from which your child can choose.

Our children have access to a wide range of enrichment and educational activities including arts and crafts, dance, science club, and gym activities. Some of these activities are offered every day, giving your child the chance to repeat favorite activities or explore something new.

All of our activities are designed with our four core character values in mind: Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility.

Healthy Body and Mind

Our goal at the YMCA has always been to create a space for healthy youth development. We encourage children to stay active both physically and mentally and to take care of themselves. We promote positive mindsets, healthy eating, and active bodies.
