Kid Zone Care is a drop-off child care program held at the YMCA. This program is specifically set up to help our members enjoy a workout knowing their child is secure, safe and well taken care of.

Kid Zone Care is for YMCA members whose children are on their membership and is offered at no charge as part of YMCA member benefits. Each session is up to two hours. Parents must remain on YMCA property while their children are in Kid Zone.
