YMCA Program Guide
At the Y, this fall we are focusing on families because we believe every family deserves a Y. From now until the end of 2017, new families are invited to join the Y at a special rate so you can experience why the Y is the place for your family. We are beyond excited about all of the member and program updates coming to our Y this fall:
A place for quality time as a family. This fall we are adding themed Family Nights, Parent and Tot Times, Family Swim Nights, and Family Campfires at our Y that are designed especially for families. We understand time alone for parents is also important in building a strong family, so this fall we are offering Parents’ Night Out (monthly) and Parents’ Morning Out (weekly) where you can feel assured your kids are safe and having fun while you take a little much deserved time for yourself. Details on these events can be found on page 17 of the program guide.
A place to pursue healthy living together. The Y is a great place for you and your kids to play, whether in the gym or one of our pools, or through participation in one of our youth sports programs where your kids will build character and skills, and you can choose to be a volunteer coach or cheer from the sidelines. You can also pursue fitness goals through family training sessions led by our certified personal trainers. Personal and family training is found on page 20.
A place for your kids to nurture their potential. At the Y, we invest in your kids. Whether it’s teaching them new skills like ASL through our specialty programming, supporting their academic learning through our Summer Learning Academy, or encouraging discovery for the littlest ones in our Early Learning Center, our staff are professional mentors who care about your kids. Youth development can be found on pages 9-12.
A place for all. We want to invite everyone from the Cedar Valley community to join our Y family. We have reevaluated our membership rates, and starting September 1, new membership rates will go into effect. We believe everyone deserves a Y, so the Family YMCA of Black Hawk County offers an Income-Based Membership Pricing structure. This program offers a sliding fee scale that is designed to fit the financial situation of each individual household in our community. For more membership information, visit pages 3-6 of the program guide
One of the reasons I took this job was because I knew the Y would be a great place for my own family. I am committed to ensuring our organization is a positive place where every member of your family can learn, grow, and thrive.
