We have updated our mask wearing policies in accordance with the State of Connecticut and the Centers for Disease Control’s guidance as follows: 

  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated (two weeks after the final COVID vaccine dose) are no longer required to wear masks while inside in all non-childcare areas or outside the YMCA. We encourage those who are fully vaccinated to continue to wear a mask if they feel comfortable doing so.
  • Individuals who are not yet fully vaccinated must adhere to the State of Connecticut and the CDC guidance and continue to wear a mask while they are indoors at the YMCA.
  • Masks are still required for ALL individuals in child care & school settings in accordance with the Office of Early Childhood. All staff & participants will be required to wear masks at all times in the following locations & programs:
    • YMCA Learning Communities at Choate & Masonicare
    • Rotary/YMCA Teen Center & ELMS
    • Upward Bound
    • Child Watch
    • SAGE at the Wallingford Public Schools
  • As the East Side Branch of the YMCA is an integral part of our Camp Ulbrich program, masks are required to be worn by everyone, regardless of vaccination status, in the following areas:
    • Entrance & Welcome Center
    • Hallways & Stairwells
    • Boys, Girls & Family Locker Rooms Downstairs

Please note: While we will not be requiring proof that an individual is fully vaccinated, we expect that anyone who enters our facilities will follow CDC guidelines regarding masks. We ask that our members continue to be understanding & compassionate toward others as we all adapt to these operational changes.

Your child will enjoy so many activities while at SAGE including: arts & crafts, science projects, active play in the gym & outside, table games, community service projects, theme days and more!

The SAGE program also collaborates with the Wallingford School System, Public Library, Police Department and others for special presentations & events.

We also have full day child care available during school vacations with our Camp Ulbrich Y-Cation Days.


All SAGE sites are state-licensed facilities. Our staff are First Aid & CPR trained. We abide by all CDC & Office of Early Childcare guidelines related to cleaning & sanitizing and work with the Board of Ed to uphold their requirements.
