Vacation Programs

The Y! holds special day-long programs (often trips and special themed events) on public school full- and half-day holidays.

Our Vacation Day Programs are the perfect way to make sure your child (in grades K–5) is getting the most out of their days off from school, while you are at work.

Specialty classes at the Riverdale Y! will be offered. Your children will see new places, experience enriching activities, and of course have fun!

Our programs are open to the entire community. We provide a safe and nurturing day for your children. See our newsletter, e-blast, and visit our Facebook page for dates and details.

Prices will vary depending on the activities scheduled for the day, and registration is required by the day before the program.

See our Bronx 12 feature interview!

To register, please email rvantosh@riverdaley.org or karmstrong@riverdaley.org, or call (718) 548-8200, ext. 201.

School Half Days

Special programs will be offered at the Riverdale Y! for Kids’ Space and RiverdaleY!Care (RY!C) participants when public schools dismiss for half-days. At the conclusion of the half-day program, RY!C participants will be transported back to their respective schools for their normal afternoon program and Kids’ Space participants will remain at the Y! for their regular after-school program. These half-day programs will include a kosher lunch.
