Kids Day Off

It seems like kids have more days off than they used to with all of the holidays and institute days. If you are looking for a safe, fun and active place to have your kids stay on days where school is out, bring them to the Foglia YMCA's Kids Day Off program!

No more sitting at home stuck in front of the TV falling into mindless video games for hour upon hour. Here at the Y we keep you moving and with fun activities such as taking field trips, swimming in our pools, playing kickball with friends, making crafts such as play dough and testing out your chef skills with making desserts such as caramel taffy apples!

The Foglia YMCA provides child care in accordance with District 95 institute days and most holidays.

The program will be offered at the Foglia YMCA facility. Information will be distributed at the program sites or for further information, please call Mimi McGlauchlin, School Age Child Care Director, at 847-410-5379. Download flyer and registration form.
