All kids have great potential. At the Y, we want young people to explore their possibilities and think big! That’s why we offer such a diverse array of activities in an encouraging and supportive environment, where kids can explore new interests and passions. Led by positive role models, the Y’s programs encourage young people to develop healthy, trusting relationships and self-reliance through the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

Youth Ropes

Ages:  6-12

Students will learn to demonstrate initiative, problem solving, trust while learning about themselves and others. They’ll build rapport in our outdoor setting involving high and low elements–soaring (or climbing) to new heights on the Giant Swing, or overcoming obstacles on Voyager’s Crossing platforms. They’ll scale our Rockwall and practice their ability to balance on our Whale Watch.
