Kids in the HAYC3 Program will explore, examine, experiment, exercise, create, draw, paint, build, bond, discover new ideas, develop personal and teamwork skills, get wet, share and have fun.


The Program’s themes are varied and will appeal to kids at every level.

The HAYC3 Summer Enrichment Program is New York State Certified and runs Monday through Fridays from 8am to 4pm. Extended hours are 7-8am and 4-5pm and cost $5/hour. Kids should bring a lunch; snacks will be provided. We will take the children to the Town Pool each afternoon. The cost is $120 per week.

Rensselaer County Department for Youth and NYS OCFS provide a portion of funding for this program.
