Play and Excel After the Bell!

Hopewell Valley YMCA is pleased to offer a selection of after school enrichment programs right in your child’s elementary school. Kids can play, learn and excel after the bell without ever having to get in the car! Children enrolled in our After School Care Program will be escorted directly to After School Care after enrichment class. Children attending once school is dismissed will be instructed to meet the instructor at the central meeting location in the child’s school. Our enrichment programs are geared to allow children to explore new activities, socialize with their peers, and have fun in a safe and nurturing environment.

We are able to offer this wonderful enrichment program from donations through our Annual Tom Jackson Golf and Tennis Tournament and other community donations.  We would love your continued support to our youth programming.  Please consider donating to our efforts!
