Kid’s Night Out

With Kids Night Out, parents enjoy a night out while kids engage in fun and safe activities at the Y

We know parents need a break from time to time while kids enjoy games, crafts, and more centered around a unique monthly theme. Kids play in the Play and Learn Center while adults can enjoy an evening out. These specially themed evenings include crafts, games, dinner, physical activities and lots of fun!

Parent’s Day Out

Take four hours of “me” time while your children make crafts, play games, and just have fun in a safe and well-supervised environment

The Parent’s Day Out program provides a play group for your child and a break away from the Y for you to shop, run errands, have an extended lunch, see a movie or just relax. Children can learn a lot from regular play dates with friends including social skills, sharing, communication with others and how to deal with separation issues. We offer arts & crafts, group activities, story time and free play.
