What We Offer - For Kids
The YMCA has long been at the forefront of providing quality, low-cost programming for youth. Our programs are run by caring, experienced staff with a focus on youth development principles: safety, relationship building, skill building, community involvement, and meaningful youth participation.
During 2-5 day programs, our experienced and dedicated naturalists tailor a program that weaves adventure, play, reflection, teamwork, and stewardship with your academic objectives.
Supplement your classroom science lessons with real-world, outdoor, service learning projects!
Let our naturalists bring Environmental Education to your classroom with a curriculum that supports state science standards!
Join us for a Field & Family program or hire our naturalists for a tailor-made nature excursion, or teambuilding with your group!
Students feel EMPOWERED, self-esteem is ENHANCED, and a sense of COMMUNITY is developed through carefully crafted group initiatives.
Explore the relationship between personal and planetary health or just get your hands in the dirt.
