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. The day will run from 9:00am–5:00pm and extra options include early stay (8:00am–9:00am) and/or late stay (5:00pm–6:00pm) fees.

To register, please email RVantosh@RiverdaleY.org or KArmstrong@RiverdaleY.org, or call (718) 548-8200, ext. 201.
