Have Fun while school's out with AFTERSCHOOL at the Y!

Afterschool at the YMCA lets kids have fun while school is out! Providing children with a safe place to play, engage and socialize, it's no wonder spots in this program fill so quickly.

Not only is Afterschool a source of fun, it's also a gateway to fulfilling artistic and athletic pursuits. So many kids registered in our Afterschool program discover newfound interests in swimming, gymnastics, soccer, dance, basketball, and more!

At participating centers, add-on programs are available to kids enrolled in Afterschool. During the program hours of 3:00 pm-6:30 pm, a counselor will be responsible for taking your child to the add-on program and returning your child to the Afterschool program unless otherwise notified.

Add-on programs focus on sports, theatre, swimming, dance, and the arts. They are a terrific way to introduce your child to activities that uplift, excite, and challenge them. What starts as a fun afterschool activity often turns into a lifelong passion. Talk to your branch about which programs are available.

In addition to the add-on programs that keep kids engaged with extracurricular activities, Afterschool at the Y offers Study Hall sessions to help with homework at the Morrison Branch. Using these study sessions to improve reading, math, and science mastery, kids go from surviving to thriving in the classroom.

Of course, growing children need sustenance to stay engaged with the stimulation that Afterschool Programs offer. That's why each child is given a healthy snack upon arrival at afterschool. All snacks are peanut-free and come accompanied with water. Kids actively participate in our program, feeling fed, welcomed, and nurtured throughout the afternoon.

Aimed at creating a seamless transition between school and extracurricular activity, the Y's Afterschool Programs coordinate with school calendars, taking into account teacher work days, holidays, and student breaks. Your child's schedule is streamlined to benefit them and your entire family.

More good news! If you're a Y member, you get a discount on Afterschool and add-on programs and priority access! This means both savings and convenience for your entire family. If you're not a member, take this opportunity to join the Y now. This is the best way to get the full benefit of our Afterschool Program.

The heart of Afterschool is fun. Thanks to the safe, nurturing environment the Y provides, kids play games, make art, and form friendships outside school. It's an enjoyable way for children to transition from school to home that benefits the whole family.

Depending on the location, there are Afterschool Programs available for kids between the ages of 5 and 15. Contact your branch to explore the options. When you enroll your child in Afterschool, you give them an opportunity to have fun and make friends outside of a school setting. It's an added layer of life that benefits the child socially and emotionally.
