At the Norwich Family YMCA, we believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential. Whether helping toddlers learn their first words or preparing high schoolers for college success; getting kids excited about sports or local government; making memories at camp or afterschool—we help young people form healthy habits, develop their skills and build strong relationships. Our intent is to nurture social-emotional, cognitive and physical development through holistic youth programming, experiences and supports.
Our Youth Development Programs:
We encourage you to read our children's safety policy with your child so that as a family you are aware of our expectations. Children's Safety Policy.
