YMCA Youth Performance Center

Y- Club Afterschool Program

"Explorers" Grades K-5 / $44-week

When school is out, we know finding a place for your child to go can be tough! That is why we have an after school enrichment program at the YMCA Youth Performance Center!

This is the perfect place for your child to learn, grow and play with their friends while in a fun and safe environment!  Our program is also conveniently located near I-29/Louise Avenue – right on the way home for most commuters. 

Our center meets and/or exceeds the rigorous licensing standards and requirements of the State of South Dakota and the YMCA of the United States (Y-USA).  

Each day from school dismissal to 6:00 pm, activities that enrich your child’s school day are offered. Healthy activities and snacks are also provided to ensure that your child gets the energy they need to make it through to the end of the day.

Our highly trained staff also assist with any homework or tutoring to allow your child to continue to succeed in their academics while still enjoying the out of school time hours.

At the YMCA, participation in our Y-Club goes beyond simple childcare. We focus on the entire family by including a FREE YMCA Membership for families with children enrolled in our program, a $69 a month value!
