About YMCA of the Cayman Islands
YMCA of the Cayman Islands offers a variety of after school programmes, sports and camps that instill the YMCA's core values of honesty, caring, respect, responsibility and faith.
They are a charitable, cause-driven, non-profit organization that aims to strengthen the community. YMCA's operations are directed by their corporate staff, a group of experienced, highly qualified and motivated people. They are assisted by other equally passionate staff members and by a group of committed volunteers.
Camps are hosted during all school breaks, such as Christmas, Summer, Easter and half terms.
Their Teen Leaders’ Club provides teens with leadership training and experience through a selection of projects. The Y’s Counsellors-in-Training programme is offered for kids aged 13-17 years and runs during school breaks. Teens learn core values, make lifelong friends, have fun and gain valuable leadership skills. The programme is free for participants and requires an application and interview process.
YMCA also organises the Y Ropes Course which teaches kids (ages 7-17) critical and fundamental skills that can be used to be successful in life. Skills learnt include trust, problem-solving, communication, team-building, self-esteem and confidence. The course provides a wide range of educational, recreational, therapeutic and developmental purposes. Visit www.ymcacayman.ky/giving/ropeschallengecourse for more information.
