The Y is where kids can learn and grow in spirit, mind and body.  Our programs engage kids in creative activities that build artistic and academic skills, develop problem-solving and decision-making skills and provide a sense of achievement. Many are included free with a Family membership at the Y!

We have a full slate of half-day enrichment programs on tap for Summer 2021. Sessions start June 14 and run through early August. Here's what's in store:

For ages 3-5:
  • Fun With Food and Friends
  • Rhythm and Movement
  • Bugs, Bees and Butterflies
  • Messy Mixtures and Experiments
  • Ahoy! Ocean Adventures
For ages 6-12:
  • Fabulous Foodies
