The Niagara Falls Family YMCA will offer an inclusive summer day camp at its Town of Wheatfield Youth Center location - the only one of its kind in the area. The Y is partnering with Heritage Christian Services, an agency that serves more than 1,600 children and adults with developmental disabilities, which will enable it to provide an inclusive camp experience for children with and without developmental disabilities.

The camp, which runs June 25 through Aug. 31, will have youth sports, swimming, arts and crafts, and a host of other activities.

The cost is $125 for residents of Wheatfield and $150 for non-residents for a five-day camp week. Financial assistance is also available for those who qualify. For more information, contact the Niagara Falls Family YMCA at 716-285-8491 or visit www.ymcabuffaloniagara.org.
