At YMCA After School, kids expand their learning beyond the classroom. We use a balanced curriculum with opportunities for character development, STEM activities, arts and humanities, community service and physical activity. Our popular homework club, Excel, is offered Monday through Thursday.
YMCA After School is a structured program with time for kids to start homework, engage in active fun and enjoy a snack with friends.
During the week, students can choose different clubs such as cooking, story time, writing, basketball or backyard games. Clubs are based on student interest and grade.
After School is held Monday - Friday from school dismissal until 6 p.m.
This program serves Lakewood Montessori Middle, Hope Valley Elementary, Pearsontown Elementary and Lakewood Elementary.
After 2:30 p.m., students from any Durham elementary or middle school may enroll in After School Care, with their own transportation arrangements. It is our understanding that Club Blvd. Elementary, Excelsior Classical Academy, and Rogers-Herr Middle School have arranged bus transportation for any children who want to enroll in YMCA After School at Lakewood. Please contact the school to make these transportation arrangements before registering for After School Care at the Y.
YMCA After School counselors are energetic and enjoy working with children. We train our counselors to be leaders and positive role models. Most are high school and college-aged students.
