Licensed Before & After School Programs
With so many demands on today's families, parents need all the help they can get. That's why we're America's largest child care provider. The YMCA has over 20 years of experience providing quality, licensed school-age child care for Central Ohio families. Through our affordable child care programs, we create a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and develop social skills.
School Days Off-School Holiday Programming
The YMCA is committed to supporting and nurturing kids in Central Ohio communities. During the school year, when schools close for parent/teacher conference days, single day holidays and longer holiday breaks, the YMCA offers full-day child care from 7am - 6pm at select branches so that kids have a place to play and learn (note: pre-registration may be necessary).
Youth Activities & Sports
The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique youth development journey through holistic programming. From cradle to career, the Y provides all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life.
Summer Day Camp
Summer just wouldn't be the same without the excitement and adventure of a YMCA Day Camp. For over 30 years, central Ohio children have come together for a summer full of nature, water fun, games, cookouts, arts & crafts and new friendships! A wide variety of programs are offered for children grades 1 through 6.

Enjoy the best that summer has to offer with swimming, boating, archery, campfires, food, singing, sports, nature, camp-outs, and much more at Camp Willson – the YMCA's premier resident camp.
Summer Teen Experience
At the Y, our Summer Teen Experience is designed to help young people improve their leadership skills, explore and create through innovation, navigate new experiences, establish healthy living habits and build positive relationships with their community.
