Looking for somewhere new and exciting to hold your child's next birthday party? The YMCA offers a variety of themed parties that will meet your Birthday Child's wishes! The YMCA hosts parties throughout the year at our camps and branches. Our staff will set up, organize games and activities, offer assistance during the party and do all the clean up!
Aquatics Corner There is no better place to learn to swim than at the YMCA—often referred to as "America's Favorite Swim Instructor"! These swim lessons teach children valuable life skills, including personal safety, personal growth, stroke development, rescue, and water sports and games. YMCA swim lessons focus on positive values in a fun and caring atmosphere, and these swim lessons teach basic skills progressing through the levels.
Youth Sports Corner Your kids will love our instructional sports programs that introduce them to the fundamentals of sports of all sorts! Parents love that the YMCAs four core values—respect, responsibility, honesty, and caring—are infused into every class so that kids focus on the value of sportsmanship and healthy competition rather than rivalry, right from the start! And every kid plays! These programs encourage team building, individual development, positive self-image, and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others.

SCHOOL AGE CHILD CARE
The YMCA's Before & After School program offers quality care for elementary-age children, in a safe, secure environment. We offer a curriculum that appeals to kids while teaching confidence, encouraging self-expression, and enriching social development—all under the watchful eyes of trained and caring staff.

VACATION CLUBS & SNOW DAYS Throughout the school year, there are many occasions for schools to close—holidays, snow days, and school breaks. At the YMCA, we realize the importance of providing a safe environment for these elementary-age students during the time that schools are not operating. These are fun-filled days at the YMCA that include art projects, games, and swimming.
