School Age Programs
Everybody plays, everybody wins
We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
Before and After School Programs
Ages K-15 years
The time before and after school provides the perfect opportunity for children to learn, grow and develop their social skills. Our school-age program lets them take advantage of all the Y has to offer and to express their talents in the arts, sports, and other areas of interest.
Structured activities include KidsLit, science, group projects, environmental awareness, arts and crafts, games, sports components, field trips, and more. Children also have time to tackle homework with the help of well-trained Y staff who know how to challenge and listen to them.
Ages 13-18 years
At the Y’s Teen Centers located at the Downtown Y, Eastside Family Y and Glenwood Park Y, teens are offered a safe place to socialize and provided a wide selection of teen Program hours vary. Teens enrolled in the Teen Center must be Y youth members ($5.60/week). Financial Assistance is available.
School Fun Days/Holiday Fun Days
During school days off and holidays, the Y schedules all-day School Fun Days to accommodate children ages K-15 during days off from school. Activities include recreational games, swimming, arts & crafts, community service projects and more.
We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Like all Y programs, our Early Care and School Age Programs are open to all. The YMCA accepts CCIS payments, and financial assistance is available to those who qualify.
