Learn about the Importance of Sleep

Presented by  the East Shore District Health Department

What is our greatest asset? Our Health!

Sleep is a vital indicator of overall health and well-being. We spend up to one-third of our lives asleep. Most of us know that getting a good night’s sleep is important, but too few of us actually make those eight or so hours between the sheets a priority. To further complicate matters, stimulants like coffee and energy drinks, alarm clocks, and external lights—including those from electronic devices—interfere with our “circadian rhythm” or natural sleep/wake cycle.

It is time to join us for a discussion on the importance of sleep and to learn ways that you can get the sleep you deserve.

DATE: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 11:15am in Studio A

COST: FREE, but please reserve your space at the front desk.

The Best Summer Ever!

Summer Day Camp

Summer is an ideal time for children to get out and explore.  A chance to enjoy recreational and educational activities that help them learn, grow and thrive. Do you remember your best summer ever? Was your best summer a combination of exploration, activity, education, friends and fun? For families looking to keep their children’s minds and bodies active, the Y can  give them an adventurous, active and healthy summer.

We are committed to helping your child have The Best Summer Ever.  At Camp Nonoma, there is something for every interest and for all children ages 3-15.  We pride ourselves on offering a variety of activities that keep campers engaged, busy, and active throughout the day.  Each activity period is 35 minutes long giving campers plenty of time to enjoy multiple activities every day.  Campers are encouraged to try new activities and learn new skills including: Swimming, Sports, 2 Gaga Pits, Group Games, Nature, Songs/Skits, Reading Games, Zip Line and the Low Ropes Course.

We believe that all children should know how to be safe in and around the water so we offer free swim lessons twice a week for our campers grades Pre-K through 1 and for a minimal fee for our older campers. Pre-K– Grade 3 also get a special event every week, while Grades 4-9 get to attend at least one field trip per week!  Grades 2-9 also get to partake in archery, zip-lining and use our ropes course!  This summer, we hope to add some really fun activities for our campers to enjoy, including: a new high and low ropes element and a brand new basketball court and indoor 3 story high indoor play scape for our campers to play on! We can’t wait for you to join us!
