School age childcare: Kindergarten-Age 12

As the landscape of learning continues to change, the YMCA remains committed to serving you and your child through extended learning opportunities before school, after school and all the times in between. 

Join us for winter Camp! 

Our Winter Camp runs from December 27-30 from 6:30am-6:00pm. Kids will have the opportunity to take part in organized gym activities, swimming, art/crafts, and STEAM activities with our counselors. We hope to have a fun, festive season this year! 






Due to the labor shortage that is affecting us, and many others, we will not be able to open our Hopewell Before School program nor our New Brighton YMCA Before and After School programs until further notice. The Before and After school program at Baden Academy and the Hopewell After School program will still be opening on August 26th with limited capacity. We will be updating our status weekly depending on increased staffing. Once we are able to open these sites up to families, it will be updated on our website and Facebook page. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. Our main goal here at the Y is to offer safe and reliable care for you and your children.
