Kids Place Summer Program


In light of Governor DeWines’s recent announcements that allow child care, gyms, pools and summer camps to reopen in the near future, YWCA Columbus is ready to provide an outstanding and safe summer camp experience to our Kids Place families. We are still awaiting word from our districts, as they, too, have their own logistics to consider.  In order to have ample time to prepare thoroughly, we have made the decision to cancel the first two weeks of camp.  We hope for the opportunity to serve our families sometime after June 14 and will update you as we have further details. 

In the meanwhile, as a reminder, the last date to withdraw, and not be committed to tuition for the first week of registered attendance, is May 28 (extended from May 15).  Additionally, we would like to share the  Responsible RestartOhio guidelines from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and the YWCA Kids Place protocols we have developed thus far.  We recognize that these are uncertain times and hope to answer some of your questions.  We appreciate your patience as we navigate the steps to re-opening and look forward to working with your family soon!

For Summer Parents

I enjoy the activities and programs that are offered. My daughter has even taught some of the games to my younger daughter, and now they play together. I also enjoy the anti-racism/anti-bullying program as I believe it is very important to teach tolerance to young individuals.
YWCA Kids Place Parent
The teachers are genuinely interested in our kids and our family as a whole. They are nurturing, kind, and respectful. I appreciate that the staff members ensure it stays safe and the kids are happy.
