Here at the Y, we give parents the peace of mind to know that their child is enjoying fun-filled activities in a safe, supervised environment, while they work out. And best of all, because you're a Y member, it's free!
Our staff are caring, nurturing individuals who are all trained in First Aid and CPR because we know that safety is number one and that supervision is the key.
