About Extended Spring Semester Day Camp
Our Extended Spring Semester Day Camp operates from May 18th to June 19th and serves as a sneak peek into the YMCA of the Palouse Summer Day Camp as well as a saf environment for program participants to access the online learning objectives outlined by the Pullman School District. This program is offered from 7:45 AM - 5:15 PM daily, at Gladish Community Center. Due to the current Covid-19 situation, we are limiting enrollment to a max of 27th youth or three groups of 9.  We will be following health and safety guidelines as outlined in our 2020 Day Camp Parent Handbook.  Priority for enrollment will go to essential workers needing full-time care.  Those members with existing credit with the Y will be registered first.  Next, those without any credit but have need of full-time care will follow. Then to those needing only part-time (if space is available) starting with Y members with credit.  Payment or credit is required upfront to secure a spot.  Once full, we will start a waiting list.  To be placed on the waiting list requires at least a 1 full-time week payment (that is fully refundable if spots do not open). Also available is the option for early drop/late pick-up from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM for $5 per day.

The Y Program Staff
At the Y, we believe the values and skills your child learns early on are the most vital building blocks for quality of life and their continued success. That’s why each and every Y program is staffed with people who have a background and experience in working with children and who understand the cognitive, physical and social development they need. Our staff consists of Site Coordinators and Program Assistants who not only possess the knowledge but also the experience in working with children from all backgrounds and walks of life. Staff members are required to have a cleared background check, and CPR/First Aid training to ensure your child is in the best care possible. Our caring staff works hard to ensure children are not only in a safe and caring environment, but they work hard to keep them connected and supported in trying new things as well as demonstrating a caring nature and using positive reinforcement to build your child up. Most importantly, our staff help children learn how to be their best selves. At the Y we feel that makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow. To learn more about us, click here!
Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA)
Our programs align with standards initiated by YMCA of the USA for Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA), which focuses on healthy food options, physical activities, limits screen time and offers information to families about healthy lifestyle choices. Snack is served family-style in the morning and afternoon, where participants serve themselves and pass around food bowls with friends, in an effort to ensure that all children can learn responsibility when it comes to eating habits and develop the interactive social skills necessary for family-style, communal dining.

Financial Assistance
At the Y we believe every child, regardless of financial restraints, deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. So, the Y also offers Financial Assistance for our programs. Even if you don't qualify for DSHS or state subsidies, you may still qualify for our Financial Assistance package! Please see our Financial Assistance page for more information.

Annual Family Membership Fee
When you sign your child up for one of our programs, you're becoming part of something much deeper than a pool and more active than any gym. Your Annual Family Membership fees are applicable for the entire family across all Y programs and that membership is good for one calendar year. The Annual Family Membership fees are $50.
