The YMCA is continuing to do everything we can to serve the youth in our communities during the coronavirus pandemic, including providing quality care in our Summer Day Camp programs. While there are unknowns heading into the 2020-2021 school year, the Y is prepared to offer before and after school care through our Y BASE and Y TIME programs.
We are currently communicating with our local school district partners as they finalize plans for the upcoming school year. The Y will follow guidelines and policies decided by our partners, and we will adjust and implement our programming accordingly.
TIME TO EXPLORE!
With a focus on safety, health, social growth, and academic enhancement, our Y BASE (Before & After School Engagement) programs allow children to explore and develop their interests and talents. The Y provides a quality, safe place for children to go, giving parents peace of mind knowing that their children's needs are being addressed. We strive to deliver our curriculum with a child-centered approach that focuses on where each child is developmentally.
In addition to excellent curriculum, we implement choice-based programming. While homework, physical activity, and interests are all incorporated into the daily schedule, it is up to the children to decide, as a group, the order in which to complete them. As a result, students have ownership in and responsibility for their own learning, which helps keep them motivated and engaged.
Y BASE and After School Program families are eligible to receive a reduced rate on a Household Membership with the YMCA of Greater Waukesha County.
Families enrolled in three or more days of care, either AM or PM, are eligible to receive a $10/month rate reduction towards a household membership. Families enrolled three or more days of care, both AM and PM, are eligible to receive a $20/month rate reduction towards a household membership.

- Once enrolled, if you change your schedule and no longer qualify for your current incentive package, the Y will readjust your membership rate to the full amount.
- Families must be registered for the 2020-21 school year to receive the membership incentive over the summer months.
