ACTIVITIES EVERY MONTH
Members also participate in monthly activities sponsored by the Federation. Activities include: pumpkin hunt, roller skating, canoe on wheels, kite flying, 4th of July and Santa parades, bumper bowling, as well as indoor soccer or floor hockey. 
THREE CAMPOUTS A YEAR
Sleep on bunk beds inside cabins and eat meals prepared by the staff at several YMCA run campgrounds. These arrangements allow you to spend more time with your child. Horseback riding, archery, canoeing, swimming, climbing tower, hiking, fishing, sledding, ice-skating are just a few of the things you can do with your child to help them grow in knowledge and self-esteem.
NOW IS THE TIME
Nothing communicates more effectively to your child how important they are to you than simply spending time with them. Take the time now before tomorrow becomes yesterday. Be a part of your child's experiences. Create memories with your child that will last a lifetime for both of you!
