Summer is almost here. Have YOU made plans for your kids to have their Best Summer Ever?

For more than fifty years, kids across the Southcoast have spent their summers at one of the many YMCA Southcoast day camps. Of course, when you are the leading provider of quality day camps, where else would kids go?
