Youth Activities offered at YMCA Branches


More than ever, busy parents need support. When parents come to the Y for a class, group activity or workout, their kids need a safe, enriching environment where they can build healthy, trusting relationships with other kids and adults. At ChildWatch, children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old play under the supervision of caring, trained Y staff.  At the same time, their parents are able to relax, connect with other Y members and enjoy healthy activities at the Y. Parents may leave their children at Child Watch for a maximum of two hours per day and must be in the YMCA facility while their children are in ChildWatch. FREE for members with a family membership.  Offered at all Y facilities. 

Y Land

Y ChildWatch Staff will on occasion take children to Y Land to play on the beautiful indoor play area. Y Land is a program area designed to encourage children to exercise through play. During open hours, caring staff monitor children as they climb, slide, and swing in the two-story treehouse! Y Land is FREE for members and open during facility hours.
