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-5:30pm
  • Save by booking more days in advance! You must book a minimum of 2 days in advance.
  • Have your child come prepared with a bathing suit, towel, lunch, snacks, boots, coat, hat, and gloves.
  • Program fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
