YMCA Youth Performance Center

Y- Club Afterschool Program

"Explorers" Grades K-5 / $49-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.  The program runs until 6 p.m. 

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!
