The Ahwatukee Foothills Family YMCA is offering summer programs for kids of all ages.

For kids ages 5 to 12, the YMCA offers a full-day summer camp that focuses on a different theme each week. The program is from May 30 to Aug. 5 and starts with "Out of This World," which focuses on science experiments and delving into the final frontier, for the first week and ends with "Ahoy Matey," a pirate- and ocean-based theme, for the last week. The summer camps are Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The cost to enroll is $139 each week for full-time members and $168 for program members.

The Adventure Travel camp is designed for older kids, ages 11 to 14, who want to spend time this summer in the great outdoors. It will be from June 1 to Aug. 15 and the cost is $155 for full-time members and $172 for program members.

Ahwatukee Foothills Family YMCA, 1030 E. Liberty Lane, will continue to offer services such as Character Camp, YKidz and more throughout the summer. To find out more, call (480) 759-6762 or visit the website,
