Kids Day Off
Throughout the school year there are several days with no school for the kids. On those week days, the place for K-5 elementary school youth is at the YMCA! We offer games, crafts, group activities, swimming and lots of fun. Children can arrive as early as 7:00am and must be picked up by 6:00pm. The YMCA staff leads all activities. Parents need to bring a sack lunch, water bottle, three snacks, swim suit and towel for their children.
