Out of School, Fun and Friends has all of the benefits of traditional camp—new experiences, skill building, a sense of community and lasting friendships..
At the Wilkes-Barre Family we have fun for everyone in the summer. We bring our youth closer together in a welcoming, supportive environment to nurture the potential of youth, and promote healthy living.
During the summer, children can learn, grow and thrive through the exhilarating fun of each and everyday at the Y. In the midst of all the fun, they’ll explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships. Youth will have fun socializing with their friends in a safe, positive environment while exploring interests, learning leadership skills, and discovering all they can achieve.
