Child and Youth Development
At the YMCA we want to be there every step of the way through your family’s journey. We are committed to supporting families to living healthy, active lives together which is why we have a variety of options for children through their teen years. Kids and families can exercise, play and socialize together. Whether you want to take up an activity with your child or encourage them to try something new, there are plenty of ways to live healthy together.
YMCA children’s programs build a foundation for physical fitness that will last a lifetime by helping kids get active in a fun, safe setting. Our experienced staff will coach your children through healthy development as they create positive relationships, learn to be healthy and play.
Grade 6 Initiative
At the YMCA, we want youth to be healthy and engaged in their community which is why we created our Grade 6 Initiative. As a part of our partnership with the 2015 Canada Winter Games, this legacy program provides all Grade 6 students in Prince George a free YMCA membership to provide them a safe place to stay active and to develop healthy habits for years to come.
At the YMCA, we want to make staying active easy! Our Rec Room is a youth space designed to keep your kids moving while having fun. Bring your family for an afternoon of play or drop off your child to climb the rock wall with our dedicated staff while you focus on your fitness goals.
Skating & Just For Fun Hockey
As a commitment to promoting healthy living, the YMCA is pleased to have offered YMCA Learn-to-Skate, Just for Fun Hockey Programs and Public Skating for the City of Prince George.
