Keeping kids healthy and engaged, after hours

Designed to engage youth both mentally and physically, HYPE offers a variety of after-school activities such as fitness classes, large group games, arts and crafts, nutrition classes, and more. This drop-in program is free and open to all members and YMCA program participants.

Hours vary by location, but most HYPE activities occur on weeknights between the hours of 5-8pm. Kids are welcome to join in at any time during HYPE open hours. Some locations also offer "HYPE Night Out" events on Saturday evenings for a small fee, where parents can enjoy a night out while their children have fun at the Y.

Contact your local Y for HYPE hours and activity details.
