Stokes YMCA summer programs

The Stokes Family YMCA is offering a number of programs and events encouraging young people to stay active this summer.

Chris Chunn, Aquatics and Child Care Director said they focus on combating the ever growing childhood obesity epidemic by scheduling daily activities such as archery, swimming, and group games.

“Kids enjoy all aspects of camp, especially our Mad Science Groups and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs,” Chunn said.

Along with Monday through Friday summer camp, the YMCA is offering:

Teen Strength Training for ages 14-15 years that teaches teens how to create a strength workout plan to target their needs and the proper techniques for using free weight equipment.

Summer Basketball for all ages that runs from June until August 6.

Volleyball Academy teaches the basics of volleyball: passing, setting, hitting, and serving and includes eight sessions and scrimmages.

Kids Night Out Lock-in provides after hours fun for kindergarten through sixth graders where they play organized games, swim, and enjoy a movie.

Cornhole every Tuesday night from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Lifeguarding and swimming classes.
