Youth Development Programs at Lincoln

At the Lincoln YMCA, Kalamazoo’s Northside youth participate in various after-school activities such as mentoring, tutoring, home support, games, and social and emotional learning. During the summer, the Lincoln Y runs a summer achievers camp for K-5 students. The program focuses on combating the summer slide, as well as literacy enrichment with certified teachers using the LitCamp curriculum. In the afternoon, the program turns into a YMCA camp where youth participate in CATCH or SPARKS curriculum for physical activity, art and craft, swimming and water safety lessons, tennis lesson, field trips, and a family involvement compon
