Youth Programs

The Lancaster Family YMCA nurtures the potential of all youth by supporting their unique development journey from infant to adulthood. At the Y, we offer a variety of programs that promote education and learning, help children build character and develop confidence, learn to work as a team and create the positive lifestyle habits they need to succeed in life. Our coaches, teachers, camp counselors and volunteers weave the Y’s Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibly into all that we do.

** Please note: Unfortunately the Before and After School program for Blue Ball Elementary School has been cancelled. The Department of Human Services, the State entity that licenses child care programs, informed us that due to their department being extremely short staffed, they are only processing renewal applications right now.  All new applications are on a 6-month wait list. We are continuing with the application process so that we can offer Before and After School for the duration of the 2019/2020 school year.  Information will be distributed through Blue Ball Elementary School in March.  Please contact Tracy Brunke with any questions.


Financial Scholarship for Y programs is available for those who qualify.
