Summer Day Camp

YMCA camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside their normal lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests and new friends. Parents have trusted YMCA camps for generations, because we offer experiences that help foster leadership, self-confidence, and deepen respect for the environments and communities we live in. We offer a huge variety of camp themes, so there’s always a place for your kids at Y camp.

Y Club: A Before & After School Enrichment Program

Looking for a before and after school program? Y Club supplements what students have learned in school, while they engage critical thinking skills, get assistance with homework from trained YMCA staff, have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships.

Child Watch

While you're increasing your heart rate, your kids can play, release some energy and make new friends in a supervised, caring environment - all free with your Y family membership. Your kids will have fun with age-appropriate toys, games, and activities. Children ages 6 weeks to 5 years are welcome up to 3 hours per day and parent/guardian must remain at the Y.

Half-Day Preschool

The Y’s half-day preschool program provides enriching experiences that help to facilitate a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. We strive to meet the developmental needs of each individual child by working in partnership with their families. Our preschools are licensed by the State of Missouri, and provide a curriculum that focuses on education, leadership and character development.
