Our No School Day staff are Youth Development Assistants, Youth Development Leaders, Assistant Site Supervisors, and Site Supervisors from surrounding Y Club locations. We maintain a 15:1 ratio on site; 10:1 ratio for off-site field trips. There will be 1-2 lead directors for the NSD location. They will contact you regarding schedule, special events and other items.
The expectations of children participants are that they are: actively living our four core values (caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility); listening and following instructions from the staff and being safe while at the program. If your child is unable to follow these guidelines, they may not be able to attend our programs.
