What is the inclement weather/rain day plan for camp?

Our top priority is to ensure the safety of all campers and staff. Weather will be monitored closely by the directors. In the event of inclement weather, Bar-Y campers will be located indoors at the High Street YMCA (239 E. High St. Lexington, KY 40507). If a inclement weather day is called then you will be notified by 7 a.m. of each camp day. On inclement weather days, camp will not be held at Bar Y and will be held indoors at the High Street YMCA. Parents/guardians will drop off and pick up at the High Street YMCA on those days.
