Program Closures & Cancellations Due to Low Enrollment: COVID-19 has presented some unique challenges. As the YMCA works to revive its child care, before/after school, recreational enrichment, distance learning and day camp programs, it is important that YMCA programs remain viable so that the programs can continue to operate. The YMCA reserves the right to close and cancel any program that is not meeting its minimum enrollment requirements. If a program to close, either temporarily or permanently, the YMCA will make every attempt to notify the parent, guardian or authorized representative as soon as possible so that other arrangements can be made.
