“This past year has been challenging for so many people, especially children, who had to adapt to new learning environments due to COVID-19,” said Lauren Koontz, president and CEO of the YMCA of Metro Atlanta. “We’re proud to offer day camps that provide a safe, fun environment for children to learn and grow over the summer months.”

The Y is committed to following all COVID-19 health and safety protocols established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Georgia Department of Public Health, and local and state guidelines. 

Additional safety measures have been created to keep staff and participants safe while attending camp, including frequent deep cleaning of program sites, required pre-check-in screening and temperature checks for participants and staff before entering program sites and capacity limits to allow for appropriate social distancing.
