Each Y location offers its own selection of family-friendly programs and classes. Some of the family-friendly programs offered at the Y are:

Birthday Parties – Schedule your child’s birthday party at the Y and leave the fuss to us. The party includes a choice of activities, run by Y staff for one hour, followed by one hour of party time. Activity choices include swimming pool (recreational swim and water games), rock climbing wall (ages 5 and up *Victory only), Child Watch (free play and organized games), gym games (choice of basketball, volleyball, and indoor soccer or parachute games). The price of packages depends on the level of service you desire. Parties are scheduled Saturday or Sunday afternoons on a first-come, first-served basis. Minimum of two weeks reservation time required.

Fall Festivals – Kids up to age 12 wear a non-scary costume to the YMCA for games, face painting, tattoos, and trick-or-treating. Activities may include Pumpkin Decorating Contest and Fall Movie Night.

Family Camp – Are you looking for an affordable adventure for your family? Join us for family camp at YMCA Camp Kekoka this summer! Families can stay in one of our cabins or pitch their own tent and enjoy a weekend full of awesome activities like tubing, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, crabbing, kickball, pool time, and much more!

Family Night – Spend quality time with your family at the Y!  Families are invited to participate in FREE monthly activities, such as Aqua Night, Sock Hops, Fam Jam, Games Night, Movie Under the Stars, and more!

Healthy Kids Day®  – The YMCA opens our doors and invites the whole community in to see and experience what the YMCA has to offer to keep our children healthy and safe. Healthy Kids Day is a national YMCA program, typically held in April every year.

Parent’s Night Out – Parents, enjoy an evening out while your kids enjoy an exciting night at the YMCA. Children participate in activities including theme-oriented games and crafts, movies, and swimming.

Open Swim – Splashing and playing in the water is a fun way for parents and kids to strengthen their bond; it’s good for kids to see their parents play and have fun.

*All programs are not offered at all locations, but YMCA members have access to all programs at all locations.

Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
