In some schools, we offer only after school care. Each Club Kid program follows their school district’s calendar. For no additional charge, we provide this program on half days for both AM and PM participants. All of our Club Kid programs are registered and licensed by the New York State Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS).

PROGRAM GOALS

Our goal is to provide safe, fun, and supervised care for school-age children before and after school. We strive to provide an exciting and stimulating environment, while recognizing children's needs for quiet, individual activity. We offer a program where children can make choices that best suit their needs and interests. In our daily program, we strive to offer opportunities for:

* Personal Growth

* Developing Leadership Skills

DAILY ACTIVITES

Activities such as arts and crafts, games, and quiet time for last-minute school projects are available. In the PM Club Kid program, we offer a supervised program that is less structured, allowing children to choose their daily schedule. Snack, homework time, arts and crafts, outside play, gym time, and special events create a diverse afternoon of activities.

Group Swim Lessons

Our Y recognizes that swimming is an important life skill for anyone at any age. Participating in swimming lessons at the Y builds self-confidence, gives both kids and adults the opportunity to have fun discovering what they can achieve, and incorporates water safety skills that one day could save a life. The Y offers classes for everyone and our trained instructors do their best to make sure everyone feels safe and successful in our program. The appropriate swimming group is chosen based on age and ability.

 

Parent & Child Swimming Lessons (Ages 6 months - 3 years)

It's important for parents to form reasonable and healthy expectations for their infant/toddler when it comes to swimming and water safety. At the Y, we use songs, games and activities to increase the level of trust between parents and their children in the water, creating a positive experience, while introducing basic aquatic safety precautions to both parent and child. Classes meet once a week for 30 minutes. (Ratio: 1 Instructor to 10 Infant/Child Pairs)

 

Preschool Swimming Lessons (Ages 3 years - 5 years)

In the Y's preschool aquatics program, children develop fundamental swimming skills that set the foundation for swimming to become a lifelong activity. Our progressive swimming program includes 4 levels of instruction using age appropriate activities to teach swimming and water safety skills. Classes meet once a week for 30 minutes. (Ratio: 1 Instructor to 5 Children)

1 Pike - Beginner: Non-swimmer
2 Eel - Advanced beginner: Non-swimmer, comfortably submerges face under water
3 Ray - Intermediate: Comfortable in the water, almost swims independently
4 Starfish - Advanced: Swims independently

 

Youth Swimming Lessons (Ages 6 years - 12 years)

Click here to view the upcoming or current program session and to learn how to register.

 

Private Swim Lessons

Looking for a more intense and individualized swimming lesson?

Private Lessons - Work one-on-one with one of our swimming instructors and schedule sessions around a more flexible schedule (30 minutes).

Semi Private Lessons - Its more fun to learn with a friend. Semi private lessons can be arranged for two swimmers of the same swimming ability.

Both private & semi private lessons can be arranged for either 30 minutes or 1 hour, however, the 1 hour lessons are only recommended for the more advanced swimmers looking to build endurance and focus on technique.

 

Please contact Danielle McAvinue (Aquatics Director) at 845 344 9622 ext. 253 or dmcavinue@middletownymca.org to make arrangements.

Base Camp & Get Started YMCA OF MIDDLETOWN

Base Camp was designed to provide a smaller more private space for personal training, small group trianing and individual members to enjoy a quiet workout in a less crowded space.

This room was also designed with the understanding that starting a fitness routine can be very difficult for new or returning health seekers. We want you to feel comfortable, confident and successful on your path to beginning a new healthier lifestyle so we’ve created a 9 week Get Started Program to help you set safe attainable fitness goals, create a balanced routine, and encourage you to work at your own pace with guidance and support from qualified fitness professionals.

What is the GET STARTED Program?

  • Weekly 45-minute sessions with an Exercise Coach in a small group following a 9 week lesson plan
  • Exercises begin slowly, safely and gradually increasing over the 9 weeks
  • Informational handouts on wellness and nutrition
  • Your exercise coach will closely monitor your attendance, provide support, motivation and encouragement while teaching you the basics of fitting activity into your lifestyle
  • All coaching sessions will be at the same time, on your selected day of the week
  • Sessions cannot be made up on an individual basis

 

MAKE THE COMMITMENT TO YOUR HEALTH TODAY!

This $25.00 program is available to YMCA Members only.
Upon completion of the program, your $25 will be credited to your YMCA account for use towards the purchase of YMCA apparel and merchandise available at our Welcome Center desk.

For more information about the Get Started program at the YMCA of Middletown please contact:

STRENGTHENING OUR COMMUNITY
ONE CHILD AT A TIME

2019 Strong Kids Campaign

Did you know that the Y is committed to making services available to all, regardless of their ability to pay?  The YMCA of Middletown has a history of over 130 years of helping those  who are most in need.  We are able to keep this commitment through the generosity of our members, local businesses and community donors who support our Strong Kids Campaign.

Strong Kids scholarship assistance allows us to dramatically change the lives of those who may not be able to pay for YMCA services. By contributing to our Strong Kids Campaign you will change the life of someone right here in your local community.

  • A child attends a quality after school program while their single parent works.
  • A senior citizen takes water exercise classes remaining active and healthy thereby remaining independent and living in their own home.
  • A child experiences a memorable summer day camp after losing a parent earlier that year.
  • A teen participates in the Y’s Youth and Government program and develops the courage to stand up in front of 450 peers to debate the merits of their proposed bill.

The YMCA does not receive ongoing governmental support, nor does it receive United Way funding, so we count on your support to our Strong Kids Campaign. Every year the YMCA provides over $200,000 of scholarship assistance in our local communities, thanks to the Strong Kids Campaign.

The overall goal for our 2019 Strong Kids Campaign is $155,000.
Please help us reach our goal.
