YOUTH DEVELOPMENT IS ONE OF OUR CORE VALUES.
The YMCA believes it is important to offer a variety of activities to promote good mental and physical health in our youth. We are constantly striving to create new programs that will enhance the well-being of area youth.
The YMCA is more than a gym, we're a community!
Gaming in the Underground
The YMCA will be re-opening the Underground on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. starting Tuesday, February 8th. We have the Nintendo Switch hooked up to the projector so there can be a BIG battle of Super Smash Bros!
Participants will have access to computers, an Xbox One, a Nintendo Switch, a WiiU, a dance pad, and an air hockey table. If you have a teen or tween, this is a safe and fun place to game with other kids! You must be a Fremont Family YMCA member and present your card in order to use this room. The minimum age to use the Underground during these times is 8 years old, please.
