Nurturing Curious Minds, Building Bright Futures!

At the Y, we are dedicated to providing a nurturing and engaging early childhood education environment for children aged 3 to 5. With a focus on fostering curiosity and a love of learning, our experienced educators create a foundation for lifelong development.Through monthly themes, youth explore the world around them and challenge their minds in ways that allow them to learn and grow according to their age and ability.

Camp 2024 and 2024-25 School Year Registration

April 22nd - 24th -Currently Enrolled Child Care Families
Registration for Summer Camp 2024 and the 2024-25 School Year will open to current child care families (families who are enrolled in a CONTINUOUS Eugene YMCA child care program through April 2024).
Registration will be available on our website, eugeneymca.org. Exact time of registration will be posted on our website in early April.

Registration for Summer Camp 2024 and the 2024-25 School Year will open at this time to current Facility Members. Registration will be available on our website, eugeneymca.org. Exact time of registration will be posted on our website in early April.

For summer camps:  members must keep their membership active until the beginning of the week for which they are registered. Should a member decide to terminate their membership before the start of any camp week, they will forfeit their place in all subsequent weeks of camp. 
For school-year child care programs:  membership must be sustained through October 31, 2024. Any termination of membership before this date will result in unenrollment from the child care program for the remaining months of the school year. 

We believe the Y can have the greatest impact on families and children through consistent connections and intentional relationship building, connections beyond seasonal programs such as camp and afterschool.  Therefore, our policy aims to prioritize enrollment in camp and afterschool programs with those families who have the most consistent connection with the Y by offering early registration benefits. By implementing a policy that fosters a deeper connection between Y membership and Y program participation we believe children will achieve new heights as they experience deeper connection, more consistent mentoring and education, and elevated access to not only terrific seasonal programs, but to world-class tools and resources at the new Y.

May 1st - Everyone
Registration for Summer Camp 2024 and the 2024-25 School Year will open and be available on our website, eugeneymca.org. Exact time of registration will be posted on our website in early April.
