Vacation Camp

School is out on June 8th (Anniversary Day) and June 12th (Clerical Day). Oh no! But worry not, Be Me: After School Program at the Y has got you covered with super-fun Vacation Day programming for both June dates.

On Thursday, June 8th, we're headed to Palisades Center, where we'll brave 5-Wits Live-Action Immersive Adventures, ride the Ferris Wheel and Merry-go-Round, and scale the tallest indoor ropes course in the country! (Or, Sky Tykes for our younger friends!)

On Monday, June 12th, after a morning of fun at the Y we'll put our climbing skills to the test at The Cliffs at Long Island City, NY. Suitable for both our beginner climbers and our experienced climbers - all will take part in a range of activities including bouldering, tall walls, short walls, and auto belay walls.

At $75 per day ($65 for members), or around $9.00 per hour, it is a far more economical -- and FUN -- choice than hiring a babysitter.

You need not be enrolled in Be Me or Camp Twelve Trails to attend our Vacation Days: This program is open to all students, grades K to 6th. (If you have a Pre-K child (aged 4 or 5) who'd like to attend, please inquire with Jamie Guthrie, at, prior to registering.)

So what are you waiting for?
