Kinder Camp

Kinder Camp is a fun, full-day summer camp managed by the Greater Morristown YMCA under the direction of Ryan Deighan. The 9-week camp is for children eligible to enter Kindergarten in September. Kinder Campers have access to the Y’s outdoor camp complex and state-of-the-art facility, including our indoor pool and full basketball gym. The camp also includes entertaining activities at the Richard F. Blake Children’s Center’s outdoor playground and “Little Honey” indoor play space.

Kinder Camp features indoor recreational swimming, outside play, nature walks, arts & crafts, cooking, and sports. The camp has theme weeks and several special events throughout the summer with fun games, entertainment, and lots of exciting ways for your child to play and learn with friends. Optional daily swim lessons are offered by the Y’s certified aquatics staff.

Little Owls Child Care

Little Bit of the Owls at the Blake Children's Center is a half-day or full day summer child care program where children ages 3-4 years old can experience a little bit of the Blake experience. The full day program runs from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The half day program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. 2 to 5 days/week options are available.

The Little Owls Program includes nature walks, arts & crafts, story time, singing, cooking, science and exploration for your child to enjoy all summer long. Little Owls have plenty of time for outside play and exciting games in our large indoor play space.
