Free Breakfast and Lunch at Summer Camp in 2017

The Y is collaborating with the ISD 166 School lunch program to provide breakfast and lunches to all campers this summer. Campers will have breakfast at 9:00am and lunch at 12:00pm through this program. The meals are free and open to all youth ages 18 and younger in the community. Sign-up the week before to make the counts accurate by calling the Y. Youth don’t have to be part of summer camp to receive the free meals.
