Youth Programs

At the YMCA, we offer activities for every generation, from yoga babies to seniors' water aerobics.  The journey of a family is written by experiencing life together at the YMCA.



Adventure Guides
While activities with the whole family are important, we see tremendous value in supporting and strengthening the ability of a father and child to communicate at an early age. The YMCA Adventure Guides program is designed to strengthen the relationship and bond between father and child.

Afterschool
Once a child reaches school age, multiple influences enter his or her life. YMCA After School ensures that the time after school is occupied creatively and constructively.

Camp
In addition to our traditional day camps, the YMCA offers two year-round camps, Camp Grady Spruce (resident and family retreat camp) and Collin County Adventure Camp.  

Child Care
Once a child reaches school age, multiple influences enter his or her life. YMCA After School ensures that the time after school is occupied creatively and constructively.

Girls on the Run
We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.  The 10 week program, meeting twice a week, challenges and encourages the girls, whatever their fitness level, with warmups, running workouts and games which teach important life skills.  Visit www.gotrdfw.org for more information.

Health and Wellness
The YMCA health and wellness programs help people at any stage of life build positive health habits.  Participation in YMCA programs offers youth and adults opportunities to develop friendship and community and a sense of well-being.

Parent's Night Out
YMCA parent's deserve a night out.  The Plano Family YMCA offers a monthly parent's night out, where activities, games, movies, dinner and snacks are planned for kids to have a fun time at the Y.


Sports
Sports and fitness activities have always been at the core of YMCA programming.  YMCA sports teach values and character building that can become the very foundation of a person's life. PDF link
