You belong to something greater when you join the Y. It's a place where families come together to spend quality time with each other. Where children and teens play and develop self-confidence, while adults connect with friends, pursue interests, and learn how to live healthier. Most importantly, it's a place where people from all backgrounds and walks of life come together to volunteer and help our community become stronger. At the Y, we all build relationships that further our sense of belonging and purpose.
ADVENTURE GUIDES IS BACK!
Now, more than ever, spending one-on-one time with your child is tough. Not to worry - the Y has you covered. Adventure Guides encourages parents to get to know your kid while your kid is still a kid with group activities such as games, crafts, songs, stories, skits, ceremonies, and outdoor pursuits such as camping, hiking and swimming. These shared experiences build important bonds that will last a lifetime.

YMCA WORK WEEK!
Join the Southwest Family YMCA staff in sprucing up our Y! We have several projects the week of August 20th-26th that we need your help for. Stop by the front desk to learn more and to sign up! Let's work together to beautify our Y!
Kids ages 9-12 can now earn access to the gymnasium, running track, cardio rooms, and some group fitness classes through a few easy steps:
» Complete and submit the application included in this brochure to the Welcome Center.
» Attend a Kid Connect orientation with their parent to learn about equipment, wellness spaces, and the Y. (Monday, 10:30am or 6:00pm. Registration required.)
» Sign a pledge/acknowledgement that they will uphold the core values of the YMCA, abide by all expectations, and understand the consequences of their actions.
This FREE program gives your child the opportunity to exercise some independence and healthy living while you are in the building doing the same!
