Kids Events, Family Events and Enrichment

Kids and Middle School Events

At the Y, we strive to give every child and teen opportunities to learn, grow, test their own limits and explore their potential. We believe that all children and teens deserve a safe place to go; a place to hang out with old friends and make new ones; a place to have fun, be themselves and develop character. Seasonal and regular kids and middle school events are held at the Y and are always led by trained YMCA staff.

Family Events

YMCAs have long been a place where families come together. Our family events promote intergenerational bonds, bring families closer together, and offer resources they need to strengthen and maintain healthy, happy families.

Enrichment

Isn't an extra dose of creative learning always a good thing? Child development starts early and lasts long. With a wide range of activities to stimulate creativity, self-esteem and independence, the Y's enrichment programs encourage good health and high achievement.

Healthy Kids Day

Kids are less physically active and engaged in learning during the summer months and research shows that children gain weight two to three times faster than during the school year. In addition to that, kids can fall behind academically because they don’t have access to out-of-school learning opportunities. What can you do to help?

The purpose of Healthy Kids Day is to encourage kids to stay physically and intellectually active over the summer, so mark your calendars, invite your friends, and plan to have a blast!
