Child Care

Free babysitting and activities while you work out! What could be better? How about free babysitting set in an atmosphere that is age appropriate, provides time for your child to learn, and a staff that truly cares about your family?

YMCA families can take advantage of child watch for up to two hours each day while they workout, get healthy, swim and participate in on-site YMCA programs.

Summer Camp

At the Y, we value the unique personalities and potential of every child and teen. Our Summer Day Camp Program provides an exciting, safe environment for children and teens to explore the outdoors, build confidence, develop skills and make lasting friendships and memories, so they can grow as individuals and leaders. ​

Day campers are able to explore creativity, teamwork and leadership in a wide range of physically active programs that influence lifelong health living.

They have the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor environment where they develop an appreciation of nature. A variety of activities insure children build on current interests while expanding upon new pursuits. ​
