YWCA and YMCA offers child care and extends spring break camps


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – YWCA and YMCA will offer extended-hours camps for students being affected by district closures.

“While schools are closed, parents and families must work,” said Sylvia Acosta, Ph.D. “We are following city, CDC, and the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines to provide a safe, engaging, and constructive environment for students impacted by these closures.”

The YMCA of El Paso will continue to be proactive in protecting its staff, members and program participants.

YMCA has sent out education materials, encouraging members to wipe machines down before and after they workout, and have purchased a disinfection system that they are using at each facility.
