YWCA hosts summer camp for kids; scholarships available

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – With school coming to an end, parents may be looking for a way to keep their kids active and learning this summer.

The YWCA offers a summer camp for kids ages 5 to 12 that will include outdoor activities, arts and crafts, educational topics and field trips.

“We do a lot of activities that require running, jumping, hopping…as well as a lot of educational activities to kind of close the gap between summer break and school starting again,” said YWCA Youth Program manager Janae Kraud when she appeared on News 18 This Morning.

Camp runs 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday from Monday, June 9 to Friday, Aug. 8. Camp will not be in session on July 4.

It costs $100 per child per week. Parents can pay week by week, and enrollment is open all summer. Parents can also choose which weeks to send kids to camp, if it is not needed the entire summer.

Transportation and a sack lunch must be provided for each child. The YWCA will provide snacks and drinks.

A limited amount of scholarships are available. Parents can call 765-742-0075 or visit the YWCA website for more information.

The YWCA is located in downtown Lafayette at 605 N. Sixth St.
