Cleveland County YMCA

Our Focus - Youth Development

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Here at the Cleveland County Family YMCA, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.


Child Care


With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the Cleveland County Family YMCA is about more than just looking after kids, it’s about nurturing their development.


Education & Leadership


All kids have great potential. At the Y, we help them set and achieve their personal and educational goals. They gain confidence as they recognize the Y as a place where they belong and can feel comfortable exploring new interests and passions.


Swim, Sports & Play


The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building positive relationships participating in sports it’s about building the whole child, from the inside out.


Camp


Overnight, day or specialty camps at the Y share one thing: they’re about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories. And, of course, it’s fun too.
