One of the largest programs is the Sportsplex Youth Activity Camp, known as SYAC, which serves up to 40 kids ranging in age from approximately seven years old to 12 years old. The program runs Monday through Friday during the summer months. Kids arrive each day to an array of activities throughout the facility. “We are very creative in how we use our space,” described Bellingham Sportsplex Front Desk Manager Alyssa Jackson.

SYAC also offers outdoor adventures such as trips to the park and nature walks. SYAC activities range from soccer and dodgeball to ice skating and swimming at the aquatic center. Kids can bring their lunch or the Sportsplex will provide it for an additional four dollars per day.
