Afterschool & Enrichment Program

The Y’s afterschool & enrichment programs continue to be a familiar place where children can be safe, active, learning, and engaged during their time out of school. Through a balanced approach to youth development, the Y offers activities, mentorship, and academic support, helping kids to thrive throughout the school year.

Youth Sports & Fitness

Sports and recreation at the Y create a healthy outlet for children to gain new skills, learn to work as a team and connect with positive role models. Explore our activities and learn why physical activity is so important for a child’s growth and well-being.

Fulfilling Our Purpose

The YMCA of Orange County works with our neighbors to ensure everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
