5210! Let’s Go
A nationally recognized childhood obesity prevention program designed to increase healthy eating and active living in children from birth to age 18. It is centered on the common message of 5 or more fruits and vegetables, 2 hours or less of recreational screen time, 1 hour or more of physical activity, and 0 sugary drinks.

Leader of the Week Children strive to follow the four YMCA core values to become the Leader of the Week. The leader gets to choose the activity and game for that week. A special picture is posted on our parent zone board.

Dance This is a great way to get up and get moving without thinking it is exercise. Most parents can't resist the urge to join in!

Cooking, science experiemnts and other crafts The kids love experimenting, painting, cooking in the kitchen and helping to prepare healthy snacks for after school.

Additional Care Days

We also offer care on snow days, early release days, in-service days and school vacation weeks. If you require care during vacation weeks we must have your registration and payment two weeks prior to the vacation week. This allows time to staff properly and plan activities. Please call for more information.
