AFTERSCHOOL

Children in our afterschool care programs learn valuable social and scholastic skills in a safe, fun, and supervised environment. We welcome children in Head Start/Pre-K (age 4) through 12 years of age. Our programs offer a constructive balance of counselor led activities and free time for child exploration. Daily activities include arts and crafts, homework assistance, character development activities, and a variety of physical activities. Our counselors assist children with daily homework to promote academic success and provide fitness activities to promote a healthy lifestyle. We offer afterschool transportation from Abilene and Wylie schools to the Redbud and State Street YMCAs. Participants must be able to independently use the restroom.

Day Camp

The YMCA of Abilene’s Day Camp programs focus on our 4 core values – Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Kids who come to Day Camp at our YMCA Family Centers have the opportunity to build self-confidence, independence, and creativity. The activities range from leadership development to youth sports, aquatic exercise and swimming, arts & crafts, and fieldtrips. At YMCA Day Camps, campers develop friendships while learning the values of diversity and cooperation. Best of all, you can be assured your kids are having fun in a friendly, caring, and safe environment. Every activity helps each child become a confident kid today and a healthier, happier grown-up tomorrow.

Each summer, our YMCA partners with AbileneISDas a host site for the Summer Feeding Program, which provides a healthy breakfast and lunch for anyone 18 years of age and under during their designated program dates. The YMCA also provides a healthy afternoon snack, daily, to all camp participants.

Day Camp is available for children ages 4 through 12 and is available at both YMCA locations.

Preschool

Our Preschool program focuses on preparing children to be “kindergarten ready”. At the Y, we emphasize character development values such as Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. We know that learning happens through fun, so we have incorporated the Our World of Learning (OWL) curriculum. This curriculum uses all aspects of the child development (motor skills, language/literacy, recognition of self, wellness, math/science, and exploration), which enhances the learning experience gained by our participants.

A healthy morning & afternoon snack is provided daily. Please remember to feed your child breakfast and send a lunch every day.

We serve children ages 2-5.
