Milton partners with YMCA for sports/arts camps.


As part of its recreation partnership with the City of Milton, the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta Family YMCA is now offering weekly summer day camps for children ages 5 to 12 at Hopewell Middle School.

The summer program begins June 4 and lasts for eight weeks, ending July 27. Registration is now open and closes when full. To register, visit or come into the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta Family YMCA, 3655 Preston Ridge Road in Alpharetta (click here for directions), for personal registration.

Campers may select between two specialties: Triple Play includes arts and crafts, science and group sports; Sports Skill Clinic offers a different sport each week. Tennis, basketball, soccer and flag football will each be offered twice during the summer.

All campers participate in nature and outdoor education, group games and a weekly open swim at the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta Family YMCA. The Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are reinforced throughout the camp program.

The cost for Milton residents is $170 per week and $255 per week for non-residents. A $25 deposit per session will be required at time of registration in order to secure enrollment.

Each week of camp is held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Free, supervised pre- and post-camp care is available from 7:30 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Campers will bring a lunch and two snacks with them each day.

Y staff members are carefully selected for their dedication, maturity, enthusiasm and passion for working with children, said Williams. Camp staff members are screened through references and criminal background checks.
