Y Fun Club

Let go of the last minute worries, we’ve got your back!  The Soundview Family YMCA is here to help on those days when your child doesn’t have school due to inclement weather.

No School, No Worries

Be prepared for those last minute snow cancellations by registering in advance for our Y Fun Club.  That way when you wake up and find out there’s no school, you can just drop your child off at the Y for a day filled with fun.

Keep It Fun

By bringing your child to the Y on Snow Days you can be sure that they are having fun and staying active all day long instead of sitting around the house all day.  Participants will get to swim, create art projects, play sports and group games, play in the snow, and more!

Plan Ahead

To ensure that we have staff ready to go, we ask that you pre-register for days in advance.  You can do so by   e-mailing Katelyn Tortora at, by calling the YMCA at 203 481 9622, or stop in!

  • We offer care from 8:00am-6:00pm
  • Members $50 per day Community $100 per day
  • Register for up to 3 days in advance. If we have more than 3 Y Fun Club days you can add on extra days.
  • Have your child come prepared with a bathing suit, towel, lunch, snacks, boots, coat, hat, and gloves.
  • Program fees are non-refundable. If you pay for 3 days and there are less than 3 school cancellations, the money can be used for a scheduled day off from school.


Endless Summer Fun


At Camp Nonoma you can expect plenty of fun and exciting activities each day. Our Walsh Enrichment Program offers half day specialty activities for kids in Kindergarten-8th grade.

We’ve made some great additions to our camp this summer!  We are now offering swim lessons three days per week to Discovery and Greenhorn Units at no additional charge!  In addition to our Enrichment Specialty Camp, we are now offering three new specialty camps located at the Y: group adventure, archery, and swimming!  We have also added two new ga-ga pits and installed new ropes course elements!  We can’t wait for you to check it all out!

Here at the Y there is something for every child!  Whatever camp program you choose, your child is sure to have fun, make new friends, grow as a person, and make incomparable memories that will last a lifetime.  Camp Nonoma is more than a camp, we are a family.

We look forward to seeing you at the Soundview Family YMCA this summer!
