When school is in session, the Y is here for your keiki!
During the school year, our Windward YMCA operates the Department of Education's A+ After School programs at 9 DOE Windward District Elementary Schools. During School Year 2015-2016 & 2016-2017 we were voted "Principals Choice" For After School Child Care. The Y also offers Before School Program for keiki at 2 school sites for parents who need a safe and fun place for keiki to be prior to the start of school.
When school is out, the "Y" is in! We offer Fall, Winter And Spring Day Camp [Intersession] Programs and during the Summer is our Famous "Summer Day Camp" and weekly overnight Camp Erdman programs.

For Social Responsibility
Togetherhood - Activating People for Good: Ulupo Heiau
The Y's Togetherhood program connects people from all backgrounds to plan and carry out volunteer projects that address a real need in their community.
Windward Y's Togetherhood Project is right in our back yard at the Ulupo Heiau. Our most recent work day activated over 80 volunteers to the Heiau and lower Kalo or Lo'i patches, where we cleaned the ‘auwai, pulled invasive weeds, removed rocks, harvested kalo and cleaned up the area. Volunteers included our YMCA members and staff, community members and program participants. Togetherhood is a quarterly event open to all. Please call or stop by the Y to sign up for the next Togetherhood!
