Winter Programs

snowflakesOnline Registration for Winter Programs & Field Trips opened on Monday 11/29 at 9:00am.

 
Many of the activities we run at the Youth Center will continue to be drop-in rather than registration. Every day that members come in to the Youth Center there is a white board in the lobby with that day's programs and times listed. These change everyday, and don't require registration. The staff makes announcements on the intercom when each activity is starting. Most of the programs available for registration are off-site programs, such as field trips and adventure programs!
 

Our Online Registration can be found here! When setting up an online account, the parent/guardian should be the Account Holder, with the child/children as Account Members. If you are in need of financial assistance, have any issues with online registration or any questions about programs please contact Demi. Convenience fees will apply to online transactions. No refunds will be available.

All of our programs, field trips and events are open only to YC Members (must be NA residents!)
 

Click here for more information about Youth Center memberships. With a Youth Center membership, middle schoolers can drop in anytime in our open hours after school. They can only drop-in to hang out at the Youth Center or participate in programs with the annual membership. 

Currently for all of our programs, masks are required inside the building for all kids and staff. If your child is feeling sick, please do not send them to the Youth Center that day.
