School's Out Program – Offering Quality Before- And After-School Care in Your Child’s Own School

"Both of my kids LOVED their School's Out experience and, as a working mom, it truly was such a blessing! I recall days when I'd get done work early and go to pick Morgan up from School's Out, only to have her stamp her feet and grumble because she wanted to stay!"

Sign up here to receive registration notifications for Fall 2022.

New to the area? Have a change in childcare needs? Registration is open online for the School’s Out 2021-2022 school year. (Please note: we have a waitlist for the afternoon sessions at Taunton Forge and Cranberry Pines.) Our online scheduling will allow you to select exactly which sessions you want each month. Need one afternoon this week, but four next week? No problem! If your child has art club, sports practice, or a trip to Grandma’s, you won’t need to pay for days they will miss. You’ll return to the portal each month to choose your days and pay for the following month.

All registration is completed online: just click on the “Register Now” button. If you have registered online for a YMCA of the Pines program at any time in the past, please sign in to your existing account. A new registration must be filed for each child attending the School’s Out program, each year, before they can attend the program.

If you are registering as a new family and do not see dates available in the system for the month you need, please reach out to the office as those dates are already closed online. We can generally accommodate new families mid-month.

While online registration is highly preferred, printed registration packets may be delivered by mail or email to soregistration@ycamp.org (Appropriate payments should accompany the registration.) Mail or drop off printed registrations at our Welcome Center (Main Administrative Office); YMCA of the Pines, 1303 Stokes Road, Medford, NJ 08055. If you are dropping off after hours, please use the mail slot on the door.
