Elementary (ages 5-11)


The Y offers children ages 5 to 11 a wide variety of programs. From after-school to family literacy programs, sports, holiday camps, and even our amazing summer day camp, there is a place for everyone in our elementary programs!

Our programs are values-based and inclusive of participants of different abilities. Their goal is to build communities while, at the same time, empowering all participants to be the best versions of themselves.

Focusing on a wide range of enrichment themes, including sports, the arts, STEM, literacy, environmental education, and (depending on the program) homework support, allows our superstars to seamlessly go from gymnastics, soccer, or dancing, to working in our garden, rehearsing a play, cooking fun recipes, reading awesome books, and even coding apps and designing robots.

We also strive to create a sense of community among our staff, all of whom go through extensive clearances and training in order to provide our youth with a fun, engaging, and safe experience.

We understand how important childcare is for working families in our community and take that responsibility very seriously.
