Activities and Play
Staying active, developing healthy habits, learning leadership responsibilities, and developing lifelong friendships. These are all traits - for many youth - that are fostered at the Y. Whether your child is just a toddler learning new social skills, or is a teenager on the brink of young adulthood, our programs will help them discover things about their world that will carry them through the rest of their lives.
Toddler Gym: Indoor playtime in the gymnastics gym where children, ages 10 months-4 years, and parents can interact with each other. Children will develop relationships with peers, work on their balance and coordination, and get their wiggles out.
Toddler gym is designed for exploration and free play. Class time is broken up into free play time, circle time, obstacle course time, and goodbye time. Registration is required.
Starting January 1, 2018, we will no longer be offering birthday parties at the Mel Korum Family YMCA.
Throughout 2017, we have been surveying our members to learn more about how we can serve them better. The results of the surveys showed an overwhelming response to offer additional classes, especially during weekend hours. Because of limited space, we have had to look beyond how we currently use space within the building. We realized our community room is often underutilized.
Our plan for 2018, is to convert this space into a multi-purpose room. We will be looking to redo the floors, as well as remove some of the cabinets in this space. With this space becoming more multi-functional we will be increasing the number of programs we offer at Mel Korum. With this new vision, we will also be looking to shift away from offering birthday parties as an option to our programming.
