At the YMCA we believe that every child has promise. So we are driven to help all kids realize their unique potential. Y kids live in a world faced with many challenges: some are born with special needs, some live in low income families, some live in foster homes, some find school challenging and struggle to make friends. With YOUR Gift we help kids turn their challenges into opportunities through all kinds of really cool Y programs. We offer day camp, robotics workshops, art classes, healthy foods, golf lessons, swim lessons, mentoring, and more!
