WELCOME BACK TO THE Y

YELLOW PHASE – Child Care & Summer Day Camp Programs may Open

Even though the Y facility was closed, we have been blessed to have many of our members continue to be our partners and have chosen to Make a Financial Gift to support our efforts and help sustain the Y. They understand the Y is more than a gym, a pool or a basketball court. We want to THANK them for making a difference.

As we navigate through the reopening our child care and summer day camp programs, we have been planning what our programs will look, feel and act like. We have continually put the needs, health and safety of your child and our staff at the forefront of all decisions. We want you to know that we are required to follow the guidance provided by Pennsylvania  RED/YELLOW/GREEN Guidelines to reopen our programs and facilities.

There will be many changes to the Y that may be an inconvenience.  All of these efforts are being made to keep everyone safe so we can all get back to healthier living.

We can assure you that when we reopen and we will continue to deliver on our core mission, doing so to the fullest “normal” extent that is safely possible.

The information below is based on the Pennsylvania YELLOW Guidelines and the plans we have made. These are subject to change based on any additional guidance or updates we receive from the state and the CDC.
