North Suburban YMCA

Summer camps at the North Suburban YMCA begin on June 24th! Register TODAY to ensure your child gets the chance to attend!

There are camps for children ages 3 and up. The kids will have a blast creating arts and crafts, exploring science and technology, swimming, participating in field trips, exploring nature, learning about many different cultures and making new friends and memories! 

For more information, please contact Kathleen Baker at kbaker@ymcaboston.org or visit their website by clicking here

Looking for a fun way to get involved? Consider helping out at Town Day in Winchester on Saturday, June 1st from 9AM-4PM.

Town Day is a community party that takes place each year in late spring. Thousands of individuals and families who attend get the chance to enjoy a day of browsing exhibits, playing games, competing in athletics, eating, listening to different types of music, attending the health fair, and watching the grand finale, fireworks!

The North Suburban YMCA is currently looking for 2 to 3 volunteers to help lead a children's activity at Town Day. If you are interested in volunteering for this, please contact Annie Medonis at amedonis@socialcapitalinc.org.

Take advantage of this beautiful spring weather by getting outside and volunteering at a local community garden! 

The North Suburban YMCA is looking for volunteers on Friday, May 17th anytime between 8:30AM-6:00PM to help plant and finish prepping garden boxes at their community garden!
Volunteers may stay as long as they would like. Whole Foods Market in Woburn will also be stopping by to help out.

SCI and the YMCA teamed up last summer during National Volunteer Week to kick start the "Giving Garden," but volunteers are still needed to help maintain it throughout the summer. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Annie Medonis at amedonis@ymcaboston.org.

Another option for volunteers looking to help out at a community garden is at the Woburn Food Pantry's community garden plot! Last year, the Council of Social Concern hosted it and tons of volunteers came out to help make it a smashing success. Now, they are looking for new helpers this year to tend to the garden!

Volunteers can help out with planting, weeding, watering and harvesting the garden. If you are interested in volunteering at the community garden, please contact the garden coordinator Clarinda Massengill at (978) 761-0795 or cm1665@comcast.net.

The North Suburban YMCA is looking for families and friends of the North Suburban YMCA to help walk with us at the En ka parade on Saturday, May 18th from 8:15am-10am.

The parade is from 9-10am, but we would like volunteers to show up at 8:15am at Winchester High School on Skillings Road in Winchester.

Contact Annie Medonis at amedonis@ymcaboston.org for more information.
