Resources for Children
Arizona Schools have a delayed opening for in-person classes until at least August 17th. Governor Ducey has allowed for online education to begin earlier.
Triangle Y Ranch Camp and YMCA of Southern Arizona are helping healthcare workers, first responders, and essential employees that live in the Tri-Communities of Oracle, San Manuel, and Mammoth by providing childcare for those in need while school is out. Community Day camp will begin Monday, March 23rd from 6am-6pm and will include breakfast and lunch. This program will run as long as kids are kept out of school. Following guidelines set up by the CDC and the state of Arizona, the YMCA staff will keep groups at 10 or less. These groups will move independently around the property separated from other groups. Areas will be disinfected between transitions, and groups will wash their hands regularly.
