The Y never turns anybody away. We're a non-profit agency devoted to helping the men, women, and children of Greenwood County learn and grow.
In order to serve you better the YMCA Afterschool Program has been divided in to three unique divisions. We feel each child will benefit and grow while enrolled in the program specially designed for their age and grade level. In the best interest of each child enrolled in our program all three programs are uniquely designed with activities in the most appropriate settings.
The YMCA picks up at all District 50 Elementary and Middle Schools, plus Greenwood Christian School.
The Kid’s Klub program is designed especially for children K5 through 3rd grade and will operate at the St. Mark Rivers Street Campus (behind the YMCA Gymnastics Center) during afterschool hours. Kid’s Club will offer a daily healthy snack and devotion, character development, and homework time. In addition, your child will choose which extra curricular activity they would like to participate in each day. During prime time as a bonus, “Fun Friday” will allow your child to choose between many fun activities such as: swimming, movie time, sports, games and much more!
Graduate on up to the new and improved Kid’s Kollege located at the main campus of the YMCA! This child care program has been developed especially for 4th and 5th graders. Each day Kid’s Kollege will offer a healthy snack, devotion, character development, homework time and an extra curricular activity of the participant’s choice. This dynamic revamped program will utilize the YMCA’s indoor rockwall, basketball gyms and swimming pool each week.
Welcome to YMCA Teen University! This program is for Middle School age youth that will operate during afterschool hours. Teen University offers a healthy snack, devotion, character development, and homework time each day. Your child will be able to participate in organized activities such as sports, game play, and an introduction to youth and government. There will be opportunities for service projects, workout in the fitness room, and even time to “hangout” in a safe environment.
