It may be colder outdoors, but your kids can still make new friends and stay active indoors at one of three YMCA of Northern Alberta Health and Wellness Centre locations in Edmonton! Whether your children love sports, science, swimming, art, cooking or dance, there’s a program for them at the Y this Winter.

Arts, Culture and Science

Explore science, art, math, language and physical literacy in Y Play and Learn at YMCAs in Edmonton! This class is presented in a play-based, instructor-led environment with a parent or guardian for children 2–3 years, or independently for children 3–5 years.

For 5–12-year-olds, Creative Expressions will help your child discover their artistic side through art, music and theatre games! Alongside peers of similar age, they will do various art activities like painting, sculpting, performing theatre games and expressing themselves through music.

Sports and Recreation

The Y is empowering children’s confidence in a fun, safe and welcoming environment through sports and recreation programs like floor hockey, basketball, volleyball and soccer! Children will hit the ground running and move their bodies in a variety of fun activities and games.
