​Many parents are seeking ways for their children to stay engaged with learning during the winter break, which has prompted the YMCA of Greater Cleveland to offer "Out of School Days" this month. The "holiday camps" aim to ensure that children have a place to go to stay physically and mentally active, while being in a safe place during time off from school. 

The YMCA is offering Holiday Camps during the weeks of Dec. 19-22 and Dec. 27-30  at the following locations:

  • Lakewood YMCA
  • Vermilion YMCA
  • West Park YMCA
  • Warrensville Heights YMCA

Registration closes on December 12, 2022. Parents can visit https://www.clevelandymca.org/holiday-camps-cleveland-ymca for details. Registration closes on December 12, 2022.

Spectrum News spoke with Natisha Bowling, the YMCA’s vice president of Youth Development, to learn more about the program and the process for registration. Click on the video box above for the full interview.
