Kid Zone

More than ever, busy parents need support. When parents come to the Y for a class, group activity or workout, their kids need a safe, enriching environment where they can build healthy, trusting relationships with other kids and Y staff. In the Kid Zone, children play under the supervision of caring, trained adults. At the same time, their parents are able to relax, connect with other Y members and enjoy healthy activities at the Y. We watch your young person for up to two hours while you enjoy your workout. Children under the age of one are limited to one hour.
