Cocktail Attire recommended for the evening

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development, all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.


Afterschool programs at the Y focus on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.



Day or specialty camps at the Y share one thing: they’re about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence and make lasting friendships and memories. And, of course, it’s fun too.


Swim, Sports & Play

The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
