  • Yes — and as we like to say “no school, no problem!” The YMCA Safe ‘n Sound Schools Day Out program is a great way for youth to have fun all day when there is no school. When school is out, our program is able to help keep kids safe and engaged in a full day of activities, which can include field trips, swimming, science projects, creative crafts, and active physical group games! 

    The Schools Day Out program is available to youth in kindergarten through the 7th grade most days when school is not in session from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m., with drop off before 9 a.m. and pick up after 3 p.m. 

    Programming is offered in two locations: 
    • District 203: Elmwood Elementary School (1024 Magnolia Lane, Naperville, IL)
    • District 204: Fry Family YMCA (2120 95th Street, Naperville, IL)

    If your child is participating in the Schools Day Out program, please send a sack lunch, drink or water bottle, and comfortable clothing to play, including closed toed shoes — and be sure to dress for the weather because we sometimes venture outside. 

    For additional information, please email us at [email protected] or call us at 630-585-2207. 
  • Yes! As part of the Schools Day Out programming, we offer Heat/Snow Days when school is canceled by School District 203 or 204 due to weather. When there is extreme weather, we evaluate if staff, as well as participants, can arrive safely and provide a program. 

    If the school district elects to have a full remote learning day, YMCA staff will help support their remote learning. If your child is participating in this activity, please ensure they bring their devices, chargers, and a headset. 

    If the school district decides to have a non-school day, our staff will implement engaging activities, such as crafts, active games, and other fun activities. If your child is participating in these activities, please dress them in comfortable clothing and bring appropriate snow clothes: boots, gloves, hat, and a scarf. 

    All participants should bring a sack lunch and drink, and the YMCA will provide an afternoon snack. 

    Registrations are accepted on the day school is canceled. Space is limited. The YMCA Safe ‘n Sound program office opens at 6 a.m. to accept phone registrations the day school is canceled. Payment is due at the time of registration. 

    For additional information, please email us at [email protected] or call us at 630-585-2207.
