Hogan Family YMCA offers camps for Christmas, New Year’s
MADISON – When the excitement of Christmas morning has passed, children need a safe and an active environment when Dad and Mom return to work.
Luckily, Hogan Family YMCA has an answer for daycare during Christmastime and the start of a Happy New Year.
Hogan Family YMCA, 130 Park Square Lane in Madison will conduct their Christmas Holiday Camp before/after Christmas on Dec. 19-23 and the next week on Dec. 26-30.
In addition, youth can attend New Year’s Camp on Jan. 2-3, 2023 when parents must return to their jobs.
Hogan Family YMCA’s staff hosts day-long and week-long holiday camps on most days when Madison City Schools dismisses classes. Supervised, age-appropriate activities include indoor swimming, field trips, sports, games, free play, arts and crafts, movies and other recreation.
Day camp hours run from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Children in kindergarten through eighth grade can attend. Campers should bring a full bottle of water, lunch, two snacks and swimwear with a towel.
YMCA staff said that parents don’t need to worry about what their child will do during school breaks. At the holiday camp, the youth can have a fun time with their peers while under supervision of qualified staff.
For Hogan Family YMCA members, the Christmas Holiday Camp costs $155. Individuals who aren’t members pay $205.
