Program design is based on the varying needs and interests of middle school students. Academic and homework support time is provided each day to support academic success. Enrichment activities that foster skill building and leadership development will be based on youth choice and will be offered in (5) 6-7 week sessions, giving students the opportunity to try different activities throughout the programmatic year.
Youth have the option of attending program 3 days per week or 5 days per week.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 3:30-6:00pm
The YMCA provides on-site programming five days per week, from 3:30-6:00pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and from 2:00-6:00pm on Wednesdays (early release day).
Families have the option of enrolling their child in a 3-Day Program, or 5-Day Program.
You can register online to secure your child's spot, or you can download a registration packet and submit to the Buchanan YMCA. If you are applying for financial assistance or your child receives a subsidy through Children's Council, we recommend you submit a paper registration packet.
