Michele Weston, Administrative Liaison for the Sedona YMCA, says, “What a gift to have this opportunity for the children of working and non-working parents of Sedona and the surrounding community! As a single mother of three young boys, it was a huge relief to find programs designed to guide and safely house my children while I worked to provide for my family. The Y afterschool kids interact respectfully with each other, have fun with their friends, smile, laugh, and giggle. It’s a great place for children filled with lively, wholesome energy!”
Parents can drop off their kids at Y headquarters at Posse Grounds Park where they will spend the day learning about good moral and ethical values: respect, honesty, caring, and responsibility. Another goal of the Y counselors is to teach participants leadership, team work, art, exercise and FUN. A big part of the afternoon is, weather permitting, being outside at the Posse Grounds Park area playing organized games like soccer, tag, and Frisbee. The Y prides itself on inspiring children to learn while in a safe atmosphere. The New Adventures Club is the YMCA afterschool program for kids 6-12 and this Spring Camp is an extension of this program.
