Beyond the Bell (formerly Y's Kids Before & After School) programs focus on character development by using the Y's four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. More than 900 of your neighbors across Skagit County trust the Y with their children because we are the nation's leading nonprofit organization committed to youth development.
We work hard to give homework support, physical activity, healthy snack, and creative projects, allowing for families to spend quality time together at home.
All Beyond the Bell locations are licensed by the Department of Children, Youth & Family and accept DSHS subsidies. Other scholarships are available for those who qualify, because we believe every child should have the opportunity for quality care and a safe place to be outside of school.

The Y's Beyond the Bell Day Camp program is structured for those days that school is not in session throughout the regular school year. Every activity is carefully designed to expand imaginations, encourage lifelong fellowship, and instill positive values. While at the Day Camp program your child will participate in field trips, arts and crafts, special projects, and indoor and outdoor games.
School's Out Day Camp is only available for children enrolled in Beyond the Bell.
