Youth Development

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.

Nationwide, nine million youth are taking a greater interest in learning; making smarter life choices; and cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, the pursuit of higher education and goal achievement.

At the YMCA of Greater Spartanburg, we offer a wide variety of programs, special events, fitness classes, and services geared toward helping our youth become healthy, happy adults.

Programs for children include Afterschool Care, Mother's Morning Off, Youth Sports Leagues, Home School PE, Swim Lessons for all ages and ability levels, Summer Day Camp, Overnight Camp, and Y-Spartaquatics Swim Club.

Children's fitness classes include Kindergym, Fit Kids Class, Fit Kids Yoga, TaeKwonDo, Karate, and Racquetball.
