Youth and Family Programs

Our programs for kids, teens and families promote wellness grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. For more information, contact Claire Eades at 720 524 2778 or ceades@denverymca.org.

Autism Respite

The aquatics-based Autism Respite Program gives kids an opportunity to move and exercise, while increasing their comfort and familiarity in the water, with other people, and in a recreational environment that is conducive to their special needs.

Child Care

Our childcare programs provide a convenient, high-quality childcare solution for families. With all our programs, parents rest assured that their children are in a safe, nurturing environment and given every opportunity to learn, play and grow. 

Kids Programs

We offer a variety of programs for kids of all ages such as Youth Yoga, Ballet, Tap Dance, Kids Night Out and more!

Swim Lessons and Swim Team

Swim lessons begin monthly for all levels and ages. For more advanced swimmers, the Schlessman Y also has a swim team.

Youth Sports

Year-round youth sports and fun for all skill levels. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning a sport 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.
