CURRENT AND 2019 SUMMER PARTICIPANTS-La Crosse, Onalaska and Holmen

Here’s what you need to know about the new process: 

  • This new process is only for La Crosse, Onalaska and Holmen sites. If you are interested in care at Bangor, current families can drop off registration paperwork at either YMCA location starting on March 4th, 2020.  
  • You no longer have to come to the Y and wait in line to register your child for summer School Age Care!!  
  • You will register online for a “Placeholder.” This will be timestamped and dated and you will be assigned a registration date and time.
  • Starting March 23rd School Age Care Professionals will be processing registrations.
    • You do not need to come in during your registration this time, you just need to be available via phone if we should have questions.
  • IMPORTANT – you need to fill out a Registration Paperwork Packet and bring back to the Y no later than March 20, 2020.  If you do not have your completed paperwork in by that date we will contact you to schedule a later registration date.
