The YMCA is so excited for another summer at the new Northfield Y facility. At Y Navigators, kids get to be kids. Whether it’s sliming their favorite counselor, learning a new stroke in swim lessons, collecting cool bugs or simply making a friend, Y Navigatros is a place for everyone to feel like they belong. We are here to welcome each kid for who they are and to help them grow mentally, physically and emotionally. Each day will bring fun and exciting opportunities for your child to try new things, get outside their comfort zone and walk away with a sense of accomplishment.
Our Y Navigator program is based on the Y’s Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. We are here to help kids understand what it means to live with character in their life and how to do so through relationship-building games, teamwork challenges, and camper-to-camper recognition.
