The YMCA of Greater Cleveland announces two new youth servicing locations in Geauga County.  The Berkshire Local School District location at 14155 Claridon-Troy Road in Burton will be the site of a new summer camp and an after-school child care location.

"We are delighted to bring Y quality child care to Geauga County in an area that needs such services," said Natisha Bowling, vice president of youth development at the YMCA of Greater Cleveland.  “We appreciate our partnership with the Berkshire Local School District, which is providing outstanding facilities for these offerings.”

Summer Camp

The YMCA of Greater Cleveland youth summer camp learning experience is fun and enriching.  The program offers fun weekly themes that align with Ohio’s K-12 state standards.  The Y uses the Second Step curriculum.  It is a research-based program specifically designed to meet the needs of our out-of-school time (OST) programs.  Built on the foundation of our trusted Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programs, this curriculum helps teach social-emotional skills like community-building, empathy, kindness, and growth mindset in our youth.

Prices range for $190 to $200 per week.  Parents can choose single weeks or a summer-long camp.

Y-Club Child Care

The Y’s child care programs are designed to help kids reach their potential and thrive in a safe, trustworthy setting.  Its staff provide support and guidance, providing them with the tools for success.  The students can focus on their homework, make new friends, build social skills and create happy memories they'll always remember.  Prices range from $38 – $67.50 per week with financial aid available.
