Days Out of School at the Y


The Greater Joliet Area YMCA offers programs at each of its full-facility branches for children when school is not in session. Whether it’s an Institute Day or Holiday Break, your child is invited to join the Y and kids from all of our Kid Zone sites for days full of fun and adventure.

Children, grades K-8, may be signed in at the Y as early as 7 a.m. and signed out as late as 6 p.m. All participants should dress for the weather, bring a sack lunch, a drink, snacks, swimsuit and a towel. Advanced registration is required and space is limited. Fees are non-refundable. The registration deadline is 48 hours prior to the day off school.

Financial assistance is available. CCR&R and DHS funds are also accepted.

At the Y, no one is turned away due to the inability to pay.
