Summer is finally here, and after the year we have all had, we are all ready to get out and enjoy some serious fun doing the things we have always loved. No one deserves to have a great summer this year more than our children. One of the biggest hardships children and teenagers had to endure over the last year was the complete removal from social situations.  Now that things are beginning to reopen and get back to normal, it is more important than ever to help your children get back out there and reenter the social scene. You can easily help your children socialize while also getting physically active by signing them up for one of our great summer activity programs here at the Great Miami Valley YMCA. Here are three summer programs that your children are sure to love.

Friday Night Out & Super Saturdays

One of the best ways to help your children reintegrate into their normal social lives is to give them the opportunity to grow and thrive themselves. Our Friday Night Out and Super Saturday programs offer a wide variety of games, crafts, and activities that your children are sure to love. For our Super Saturdays, pizza and drinks are included with different themes rotating every month. Take a break from parenting while your kids have the time of their lives with one of these inclusive and fun programs. Register here.

Home School Enrichment

If you home school your children, as many Americans did through 2020, you know just how difficult it can be to find opportunities to have your children engage and interact with friends and people their age. Not to mention how difficult it can be for them to make new friends in such a contained environment. Our Home School Enrichment program is the perfect combination of socialization, fitness, and team building. These trainer-led activities are hosted here at the East Butler County Family YMCA and feature a wide variety of sports and activities that are sure to get your kids moving and working together.
