The WSYMCA Out-of-School Time offers a fun and safe after-school program for children in kindergarten through grade 8.  Our staff provides daily structured activities, providing children choices for age-appropriate and fun choices including recreational games, creative arts, a healthy snack, homework time, and free swim.  Activities are a combination of small and large groups.
