Children and Youth

  • Kids and youth

As part of the world’s largest youth organisation, helping young people to live healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives forms part of everyday life here at YMCA Club. We believe that life is a journey, so we do everything in our power to support each child and family in their journey, making it as fun and engaging as possible.

Children from the age of one can begin attending our ‘under 4’s programme’, where they will begin understanding their senses, testing their boundaries and unlocking their creative talents – even the parents can get involved to!

On our children's programme, for 4 – 12 year-olds, we run a range of programmes, clubs and activities including action-packed Holiday Playschemes, Term Time Courses and Inclusive Hub Clubs. Our programme supports children to develop their fundamental physical skills, whilst promoting inclusivity, positive health and wellbeing.

As part of our youth membership programme, young people aged from 13 up to 18 are given the opportunity to develop their independence and actively seek healthier lifestyles. We also accept Young Volunteers from the age of 13, where they can begin building an understanding of the professional environment whilst absorbing knowledge that will help them in their journey to adulthood.

The whole family can find something to do at YMCA Club, whether that’s the family swim or other events that are delivered throughout the year. Let’s all live healthier and happier!

Our programme is Ofsted Registered, 116360. We are proud to say we achieved a Good rating in 2016. For a copy of our inspection report, please contact YActive@ymca.co.uk.
