  • Summer Camp: East Orange YMCA is proud to offer summer camp programs for children aged 3 to 15. Children are divided into four groups based on age, and from there, we embark on day trips, organize activities, and emphasize building self-esteem. We're accredited by the American Camp Association, and we're committed to providing your child with positive adult role models.
  • Youth Sports: Sports are an excellent way to stay in shape while having fun. Our youth sports programs are open to a wide range of ages. If your child is interested in kids' basketball, we offer programs for grades 3 through 12. We also offer programs in cheerleading and karate.

Take Advantage of Expertly-Taught Swim Lessons

At East Orange YMCA, we know the importance of learning to swim. Because this is such an essential life skill, we provide swim lessons to students of all ages. If you already know the ropes but you want to practice your swimming, we have resources for you. Our facility holds open swim for all ages. Please note that you must be a member to participate in open swim. Ready to get started on swim lessons? It's never too late to learn with one of our programs:

  • Swim Starters: Allow your infant or toddler to learn to swim early with Swim Starters. In this program, the child is accompanied by a parent or guardian and learns to be comfortable with water. Our instructors work on swim readiness and confidence-building skills while instructing parents on water safety.
  • Swim Basics: This program is ideal for older children who are ready to learn basic swim skills and water safety. We'll work through the swim-float-swim sequence and more as we teach students to tread water and swim with confidence.
  • Swim Strokes: Throughout this program, students will work on stroke technique and learn more water safety skills. Along with improving the ability to swim, this course also encourages a commitment to exercise throughout life.
  • Teen & Adult Swim Lessons: If you didn't get the opportunity to learn to swim at a young age, this program is for you. We offer these lessons to teens and adults in which we teach correct stroke techniques and core water safety skills.
