Donate for First Responder Child Care Program

In this time of crisis Island of Hawaii YMCA recognizes the critical need for childcare for our First Responders - doctors, nurses, HMC staff, EMT, police and fire department. We are offering First Responder Child Care. As the COVID-19 crisis is expected to last weeks into the foreseeable future Island of Hawaii YMCA is asking for our community's support to operate this service and supplement child care fees for enrollees.

Y Day Camps

At the Island of Hawaii YMCA whenever school is out, camp at the Y is in.  We have Winter-2 weeks, Spring-1 week, Summer-9 to 10 weeks, and Fall-1 week of camp.  At our day camps, it's time to put away the cell phones, laptops, and iPads.  At camp we are hands on with play, arts and crafts, field trips, guest speakers and more. We are busy all of the time.  Breakfast, Lunch and snacks are provided.
