In the US, the YMCA is the nation's largest provider of child care programs, providing family-centered, values-based programs to nurture children's healthy development. Well-trained staff provide safe, affordable, high-quality care so you can have peace of mind while you work. 

Staff members are partners with parents and other caregivers, working together to help kids grow up healthy, happy and strong. With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement, your child will experience a variety of programmatic and activity options to explore and develop their interests and talents. Download our child care trifold here. 




The YMCA of Greater Dayton also provides various camping opportunities for your children to keep them active in the summer! From Day Camp to to Overnight Camp at Camp Kern, your kids are guaranteed to have one of their best summer's ever.


With a focus on friendships, campers spend their days participating in activities they choose, with amazing counselors from all over the world.  Each program is designed with specific age groups in mind, and counselors are trained to not only build campers up, but to encourage and empower them to become more.Take a look at our summer camp offerings below!
