The Cape Ann Y offers quality, affordable licensed care in Gloucester and Rockport where kids learn values and skills taught by caring adults. We offer a variety of clubs as well to pique every kid’s interest: Blockbuster Lego, Drama, Clay Animation, No Cook Cooking, Fit Club and many more. With programs that run from the closing bell until 6pm Monday through Friday, weekly swim time, and specials on holidays, school vacations and half days, it’s easy to see why the Y is the trusted choice for hundreds of Cape Ann families. We have convenient locations at all elementary schools in Cape Ann. Children from the other schools in Cape Ann can be transported by the Y to the program at Veterans School.
