Before & After School Care

Out of School Time

As the school year nears, we want to thank you for your patience as we navigate this challenging time and determine how best to serve our families this year.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many areas of our lives, including Out of School Time at the YMCA. Our protocols, schedules, programming and procedures will be adjusted, and additional precautionary measures will be taken to uphold the highest possible standard of hygiene and sanitation practices, and illness prevention.

That said, the following modifications will be made to our Out of School Time:

  • Within each location we will divide kids into small groups of 7-9 + one staff member
  • Wellness and temperature checks will be done daily
  • Extra cleaning will be done throughout the day
  • Staff will wear masks; it is strongly encouraged that your child/ren wear a mask
  • Activities will encourage social distancing
  • Capacity will be extremely limited
  • We will add e-learning support 

Please note, we may adjust our program as the summer progresses and new information is brought to light. 

We are working through a very challenging landscape and appreciate your patience as we redefine 2020.

Through the generosity of our donors, the YMCA is able to offer a limited number of scholarships for Out of School Time programs, to apply please fill out the scholarship form and submit to scholarships@denverymca.org.

CCCAP (Colorado Child Care Assistance Program)

To use CCCAP benefits for the YMCA Out of School Time program, please call 720-524-2792 to inquire about available slots. Not all program locations are CCCAP eligible and we have limited slots that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please do not register online as you will be charged full-price and end up accountable for the balance!


Per child care licensing laws, all parents are required to submit their immunizations via our ePACT medical platform before the commencement of camp. We will not accept paper immunizations as we have officially transitioned into a paper-less online process.
