YMCA offers many summer programs

Posted: Updated:

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Schools all over the state are closing up for summer vacation, meaning thousands of kids will need a place to go. And while some parents have the ability to stay home, many others have to work.

The YMCA in Thomasville offers a solution to the problem with their many summer camps. They offer camps for basketball, tennis, gymnastics, and even skateboarding.

The camps do cost money, but the YMCA offers financial aid to anyone who needs it. "We have just wonderful people right here in Thomasville that support the YMCA and through their generosity, dollars are given each and every year so that our young people here in Thomasville can have that opportunity to visit a camp," said Branch Manager Greer Cox.

Cox says one of their man focuses is to keep kids off the streets during the break. The first camp begins this Monday at Rose City Day Camp. If you are interested in signing up a child for one of the camps you can visit either the Dawson St. or Remington Ave. YMCA locations.
