Yes, we're already planning for summer!

We hope you had a blast at Y Camp 2017! We sure did! Eleven weeks of swimming, camp songs, crazy craft projects, fun games, belly laughs, silly jokes, clever themes, and more are now favorite new memories for thousands of children across Central Maryland!

As we enter into the fall season, we're feverishly working on our plans for summer 2018. Check back late fall/early winter for the announcement of our 2018 camp season, including special savings, new offerings and more!

A quality early childhood education begins with Y Preschool.

Every day, Y Preschool provides the best early childhood education to children across Central Maryland. Our program encourages children to be active, creative explorers and we allow children to learn at their own pace in ways that are best suited for them; never overlooking the fact that learning through play is a critical part of healthy early childhood development. <

Schedule a tour and register at any one of our six preschool centers today!

A few spaces remain in our 2017/2018 program!

Y Before & After School Enrichment programs are conveniently located in elementary schools and some Y Centers in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll and Harford Counties. Children can unwind from a rigorous school day, play with friends, finish homework, eat a healthy snack and more! Plus, full-time enrollment (5 days a week) includes a complimentary Y family membership for the school year - valued at over $850!

It's not too late to give your child a safe, fun and enriching Y experience before & after school.
