School Age Child Care (SACC) extends your child’s learning day in a fun and meaningful way! We emphasize the Y’s four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in all activities. SACC serves children in elementary schools for the South Orange/Maplewood School District and follows the School District’s calendar. Our YMCA offers, Vacation Camp, a Child Care Program, for most days the school district is closed. We also offer Snow Camp, for most school snow days.
