School Vacation & Holiday Child Care
We offer half- and full-day child care during school vacation weeks and school holidays to help you meet your child care needs.
You can go to work without worrying about your children.
Vacation Week Programs
Sign up by the day or for the whole week during December, February and April school breaks.
Little & Live Y'ers Vacation Week (age 3-grade 6)
What's better than a week of gym activities, free swim, arts & crafts, group games, structured free time and if possible a field trip or two? Our nurturing preschool teachers run the Little Y'ers program in our preschool room and our talented Live Y'ers Group Leaders run the Live Y'ers vacation weeks. Please contact Leah Castellano for more information.
Music Vacation Workshop (ages 10 and up)
Young musicians have the opportunity to write and record their own music in one of Boston’s premier professional recording studios. The group meets at the YMCA’s Music Studio to do the core of their songwriting, rehearsals, projects and other activities including time in many of our other great facilities. On the final day of the workshop, the group will record the songs they wrote the previous three days. For more information and to register, please contact Kevin O’Connell.
