Child Care

Child Care

Child Care at the YMCA builds self esteem, values and leadership skills. You’ll know they’re growing and exploring their potential, they’ll think they’re just having fun. The YMCA offers a North Carolina star-rated, licensed program designed for ages 5-12 that is based on the four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We offer developmentally-appropriate activities that will enhance your child’s confidence, enrich his or her social and physical development and encourage self expression. We learn and have fun together!
Leaders Club

Leaders Club

The YMCA Leaders Club works with middle and high school students to focus on developing positive life skills and leadership qualities by connecting the club to community service projects with local non-profit organizations. In addition to volunteering, the Club conducts exercises in democratic decision-making, assessing and understanding community needs, understanding cultural diversity and team building projects. The Club meets weekly during the school year.
Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

The Y offers a wide range of swimming options for the whole family. Swimming builds self-confidence and gives the opportunity for kids and adults to discover what they can achieve. We offer classes beginning at 6 months of age, all the way up to adults. Swimmers are divided into ability groups and our trained instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance and social skills while guiding students with praise and encouragement.
Youth Sports

Youth Sports

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. And the benefits are far greater than just physical health. 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.


Mission Statement: To put Christian Principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
