Snow Squad

Snow Squad

Drop-in Program for Snow Days

At YWCA Central Massachusetts we support working families. That’s why when school is closed due to  snow, we stay open! Snow Squad offers a structured, fun-filled day for children in grades 1-8. The program offers:

  • Creative Activities
  • Board Games
  • Organized Gym Activities
  • Swimming
  • Outdoor Play (weather-permitting)

Hours: 9:00AM-4:00PM

Fee: $25/day per child.

Important Information:
Please send your child with lunch, a snack, a bathing suit and towel, and cold-weather gear (snow pants, boots, hat, gloves, etc).

Snow Squad will be open when Worcester Public Schools are closed due to snow. In the event of hazardous travel or a State of Emergency, please call 508-767-2505 to find out whether or not Snow Squad will be occurring.

Your child must be picked up by 4:00 PM. In the event that a State of Emergency is declared while your child is at the YWCA, you will be expected to pick him/her up within an hour.

For more information, contact Kate McGrath at or 508-787-2505 x3003.
