“This program will help take kids down a healthy path and turn them into the Y generation, by working together in groups, learning about healthy lifestyle choices, and being able to express themselves through varying activities,” School Age Director Sarah Thomaschefsky said.
The students will be bussed to the Y from their school where they will receive a healthy and nutritious snack. After snack the students will participate in fun filled afternoons of Y organized activities.
There will be organized fitness classes through they Y, starting with Swimming on Mondays and Power Beats on Thursdays.
Arts and crafts will be offered on Tuesdays. There will be organized team games and activities that take place in the gym and outdoors on Wednesdays.
Fun Fridays will be studio and Karate day.
There is a weekly fee of $50 dollars which includes snack and all of the Y activities.
