WHY CHOOSE THE YMCA FOR YOUR CHILD'S SUMMER?

We look forward to getting to know your children and helping them discover all the magic and wonder the summer of 2013 has to offer.

Each year, the Ridgewood YMCA introduces young people to life in other cultures through its International Camp Program (ICP).
ICP provides life-changing cultural experiences and the opportunity for personal growth, greater self-confidence and independence for young people grades 10-12.
This year, participants in the program will travel to the Dominican Republic. Throughout the program, participants will interact with our international YMCA counterparts while performing much needed community service projects in those countries.
