The Y is a working parent's best friend. When school is out for fall break, teacher work days or other one-off holidays, the Y is in with all-day, fun active child care. It's a win-win. There's no "I'm bored!" from the kids, and you don't have to stress while you're at work. 

School’s Out Special is a fun-filled, full–day program offered on select Greenville County School System holidays and teacher workdays.  Children are not required to be enrolled in Y Afterschool or Day Camp programs in order to participate.  We follow the Greenville County School System operating calendar.  S.O.S. daily tuition costs are $30/members and $45/community members.  Registration is required and payment must be received in full at least one week prior to S.O.S. day.  If space is available after the registration cutoff date a $15 late fee will be applied.  Financial Aid does apply to S.O.S programming.

SOS Days and Holiday Camps are for K5-8th graders.
