Youth Fitness Center

The Youth Center at the South Orange Family YMCA is for youth ages 6 to 12 years old and is designed for kids to participate in numerous activities to build a strong body, mind, and spirit. Youth can socialize with peers and build new friendships while playing sports in the gym, doing arts & crafts, playing video games on the Wii or Play Station 3, or working out in the youth fitness area. Our rock climbing wall will be open soon and will be added to the list of activities kids can participate in during their experiences in the Youth Center. The Youth center provides a safe fun place for kids to go while mom and dad work out.
