School Age Child Care

Ongoing Registration throughout the 2013-2014 School Year

The YMCA, through its Activate America initiative, has formed partnerships throughout the state to bring the very best practices into their after-school programs. One of these programs is Healthy U. We are very excited to announce that we will continue to offer the CATCH Kids Club into our after-school program! CATCH Kids Club brings healthy activity to after-school and community recreation programs for children in grades K-5. CKC is composed of nutrition education materials (including snack activities) and physical activity components.
