Youth Opportunities at Finley

At the Y, we value building community with opportunities for youth and families to connect, stay active and explore new interests. We're excited to have a wide range of options available at the A.E. Finley YMCA and encourage you to get involved and share these experiences with others!

Kid Zone Care

Kid Zone Care is a drop-off (but reservations are still required) 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. 


  • 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. (6 weeks - 5 years)


  • 5:15 - 7:15 p.m. (6 weeks - 5 years & 6 - 10 years)


  • 8:30 - 10:30 (6 weeks - 5 years & 6 - 10 years)
  • 10:30 - 12:30 (6 weeks - 5 years & 6 - 10 years)

*Additional Mon./Wed./Fri. morning times for 6 - 10 year olds are anticipated once school is out for the summer.

Families On! Challenge

The YMCA Families On! Challenge (May 1, 2021), presented by Delta, is a fun, family race specifically designed for all ages and athletic abilities. Family, friends, co-workers and teammates experience a unique race theme, “Get Out & Go!”

This self-paced, 2.5 mile outdoor adventure course features 14+ creative challenges and obstacles. Race participants will play in mud, slide down a massive slip and slide and of course jump on our iconic 20 foot big green couch…plus so much more. Registration details are coming soon!
