Quality Child & Youth Programs

Whether you need someplace to look after your child while you're at work or you're hoping to spark curiosity in your child, we have something for them. Check out your options when it comes to children's programs:

  • Daycare: The Wayne YMCA happily provides quality care for children under 5 years old without breaking your budget. We're open from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, so you'll have peace of mind knowing your child is safe before and after work. We also provide after-school programs for school-aged children.
  • Kindergarten: The Y offers full day and half day Kindergarten programs that follow NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards led by certified teachers.
  • Summer Camp: Help your child get the most out of their summer with one of our camps. White Pines Day Camp allows children to develop new skills, make friends, and feel like a part of a community. There's a summer camp for children ages 2 through 15, and older children can even choose to become a counselor.
  • Birthday Parties: Throw your child a birthday party to remember at Wayne YMCA! You'll choose from five themes: bounce house, swim, dance, sports, and theater. No matter which you choose, our packages come with pizza, a private room, and two attendants.
  • Youth Sports and Clubs: Children over 5 years old are welcome to join one of our youth sports leagues. We offer kids' basketball, cheerleading, tennis, and much more. For ages 12 through 17, the YMCA organizes a Leader's Club where participants learn to be active members of their community.

Improve Your Health with Wellness Resources

You should never compromise on health and wellness, but it can be a struggle to focus on your own wellbeing between work and family obligations. We aim to provide the resources to promote wellness in people from all walks of life. Some of our health and wellness initiatives include:

  • Adult Team Sports: Adults should have the opportunity to enjoy sports and fitness just as much as children. Come down to the YMCA to participate in team sports! Choose from volleyball, basketball, dance, badminton, and more.
  • Wellness Coaching: We all need a little help getting started on our journey toward fitness. Our eight-week program is designed to help adults set achievable goals and learn the strategies to make them a reality.
  • Personal Fitness Training: If you need a little extra help staying accountable to your fitness goals, register for personal fitness training. Our trainers are equipped to coach you through weight loss, improved endurance, and much more.

Enriching Cultural and Learning Experiences

We believe that pursuing interests and continuing to learn new things goes hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle. That’s why the Wayne YMCA provides programs that stimulate both the mind and the spirit: 

  • Jewish Programs: At Wayne YMCA, we organize several events that celebrate Jewish culture. We put on book fairs, lunch and learns, and Israeli folk dancing lessons.
  • Lifelong Learning: We believe learning doesn't stop as soon as you graduate from high school or college. The team at Wayne YMCA works to provide plenty of lifelong learning programs to keep adults engaged in their community. Our patrons take advantage of dance, piano, and theater classes.
  • Rosen Performing Arts Center: Home to a variety of special events that the Y presents throughout the year, the performing arts center is also available to rent for company events or conferences.

It's Never Too Early or Too Late for Swim Lessons

Whether you're excited about swim lessons or you're afraid of water, learning to swim is crucial to your safety in the long-term. The Wayne YMCA is here to make sure you have all the skills necessary to become a strong swimmer. Our aquatics programs include:

  • Swim Lessons: We offer swim lessons for children and adults. Depending on your starting skill level, we'll work on the basics of swimming and floating, stroke technique, and swimming as a fitness method.
  • Water Safety: Our five-day program is designed to teach children to have fun in the water while staying away from dangerous situations.
  • Competitive Swim Team: For children who are serious about swimming, we offer a competitive swim team. This is open to ages 6 through 18, and we'll participate in several meets throughout the season.
  • Lifeguard Courses: If you've always wanted to try lifeguarding, you can earn your certification through the Wayne YMCA. Besides lifeguard courses, we also offer American Red Cross Certification in babysitting, CPR, and first aid.
