The Westport Weston Family Y After School programs provide a safe, fun and educational environment for 1st through 5th grade children from the time the school day ends until 6:00 pm. School half days are included from dismissal time if they fall on your child's regularly scheduled day. We offer After-School Programs for all Westport and Weston students.
Camp Mahackeno will be joining our popular Hafaday program for 2014. We have a great summer planned with swim lessons, crafts, games, special events and more. Families can chose to register for just the morning program of Hafaday or, for children ages 6-12, you can add the Mahackeno afternoon program to your registration and make it a full day.
Hafaday begins at 8:30 am and runs until 12:30. The Mahackeno afternoon program will begin at 12:30 and end at 4:00. We will also have our extended camp offerings of pre care at 7:30 and post care until 6:00. Our sessions are weekly starting June 16 and ending on August 22.
The Hafaday and Mahackeno summer camp is easy to register for. Forms are available on this webpage and can be either brought to the YMCA or mailed in to us at 59 Post Road E Westport CT 06776. You can even save your spot by registering online. Online registrants will still need to send in the completed camp forms by the Friday before the camper begins camp. Please remember that all campers must provide a completed physical form that is signed by a doctor. Also any medications coming to camp must have a camp administration of medication form also signed by a doctor.
