Creativity abounds at the Y
Members and non-members can explore and express their creative talents in a healthy and supportive environment for building new skills. Classes help children develop confidence and increased self-awareness as they participate in problem solving, critical thinking and attention to detail.
Our arts and crafts classes provide a safe environment for your child to build new skills, gain confidence and engage in rewarding relationships.
Our hands-on cooking classes give your kids the opportunity to make tasty recipes and empower them to make healthy food choices.
Learning a second language at a young age can reap many benefits as an adult. Our language classes offer a fun learning environment with age-appropriate skill building.
Children learn how to express themselves in exciting and creative ways through music, dance and theater.
Kids enjoy the electric properties of learning with one part hands-on activity and one part science lesson on these classes that celebrate the world around us.
