safe summer As summer approaches, children and families prepare to spend more time around water. While this can be a fun and exciting time, it is also a time for extra caution. Drowning is the 2nd leading cause of accidental death in children, the risk being highest in toddlers & teen boys. Of all preschoolers who drown, 70% are in the care of one or both of their parents at the time. When it comes to drowning prevention, supervision is the most important layer of defense. When you are enjoying your summer at a pool or the beach keep the following things in mind. Actively supervise children around water, don’t let distractions even the telephone get in the way. When there are multiple adults present, designate one to be “on guard”, never assume that someone else is watching. Be at a “huggable distance” around young children, keeping them within arms reach at all times. If you own a pool and your child goes missing, check the pool first. Seconds could make all the difference. As the Aquatics Director and a parent of two young children, I am frequently asked what I would recommend as a swimming aid for children. Often families rely on inflatable or foam filled toys such as swimmies, noodles, and tubes to help their children in the water. While these devices are fun for children, they should not be used as a water safety device. The best Personal Floatation Device (PFD) for non and beginner swimmers is a properly fitted Coast Guard approved life jacket. Lifejackets are also a must when boating. Remember to not just pack it, but wear your life jacket. We hope that your family has an enjoyable and safe summer. Keep in mind when around the water, Safety First, Second and Third. Yours truly, Stephanie Higgins


family Swim Spend family fun time together in the pool! Parents who have children under the age of 7 or who are non-swimmers MUST be in the pool with the children at all times. Check out our pool schedule for days and times — available at the branch or online at:

New Location… same Great Camp! …at eastern Nazarene College!

Welcome to camp! With construction of the new building taking place on our former camp grounds, we are excited to tell you about the next chapter of our summer camp programs in Quincy. Starting this summer, our Quincy camp will be located at Eastern Nazarene College — a mere 5 minute drive from the Y on East Elm Ave. Each and every time we visit the campus, we continue to get more and more excited about the future of camp. The space is extremely camp conducive and offers us many options not possible during our time at the Y. The campus is the perfect size — small enough to be well-contained, yet large enough to give each activity dedicated space. On warm, sunny days, there is plenty of wide open field space as well as smaller, shaded grass areas. On rainy days, we have access to numerous classrooms, multipurpose rooms, halls and gym space. As there is not a pool at ENC, we will be transporting campers to and from the YMCA to ensure campers can continue having instructional and recreational swim time. Overall, all of us are extremely excited about the future of camp and even more excited for you to see our new home! The South Shore YMCA Summer Day Camps are specifically designed to provide a safe and fun environment to offer opportunities for young people to try new things, learn, grow and make friendships that last forever. Our philosophy is that we must make the most of our opportunity to have a positive influence on the lives of children. Everything we do here at camp – every activity we lead, every decision we make, every policy we apply – is guided by the firm belief that we are responsible for the children we lead. We are responsible for showing them how to be honest, caring, respectful and responsible members of the community.

A community Neighborhood Council governs the GNC and works with support and guidance from the South Shore YMCA to identify and develop strategies to address community needs. The Council has ultimately concluded that in order for the members of this community to succeed in improving their lives and those of their families, they must gain the skills and confidence to take action. Our programs and services work toward this end, serving over a thousand adults, youth, and seniors throughout the year. Services include the Food Pantry, Holiday Assistance, Advocacy and Referrals

Since 1982, the Germantown Neighborhood Center (GNC) has been providing critical support services to youth and families of the Germantown community of Quincy. The percentage of people living in poverty in Germantown is currently four times greater than in the overall City of Quincy.

The South Shore Natural Science Center is a nonprofit South Shore YMCA organization located in Norwell on 30 acres surrounded by 200 acres of town conservation/recreation land consisting of meadows, woodlands and a pond. We are dedicated to educating the community about the natural and cultural environments of the South Shore. We are open year-round and are located at 48 Jacobs Lane, Norwell.
