At the Y, we help kids develop more than just strong muscles. With programs like STEM Mondays, photography and other enrichment classes, we help kids minds grow along with their muscles.

Some of the program offered include:

Leap & Learn Preschool Class: Offered in Holdrege on M-W-F

Nerf Wars: Nerf War nights are offered at both branches throughout the year. Boys and girls will be having so much fun, they won’t know they are exercising!  Ages for the Holdrege events are 7-13. Ages in Lexington are Grades 1-6.

STEM Mondays: Art, Science, Photography and Lego are some of the month-long classes offered in Holdrege to encourage kids in the areas of science, technology and creativity.

Youth Dance Fusion & Yoga Kids: These programs are offered in Holdrege during the fall to get kids moving after school.

School Day Out: When school is out, the fun is in at the YMCA. Both branches offer School Day Out programs with fun and educational activities for elementary-aged kids when school is not in session.

Basic Banking For Youth: This program is offered at the Lexington location in the spring to help kids in grades 6-12 understand the basics of banking and personal finance.

Youth Weight Training: This program is offered at both branches for children 11 and older who want to learn to properly lift weights and learn about healthy living. Those who pass the class can exercise on their own at the Y.
