Free 7th & 8th Grade Memberships

Do you have a teen who is entering the 7th or 8th grade in the Fall of 2021? If so, good news! The YMCA of Greater Dayton is offering these teens a FREE membership from June 1st–August 15th, 2021. 

7th & 8th graders will have the opportunity to participate in scheduled programs and activities with other Dayton area teens. Programs and activities include games, crafts, sports, service projects, character skill building, mentoring, teamwork and much more!

Programming happens Monday–Fridays from 1pm–5pm. We'll meet in the YMCA lobby starting June 1st.
*A parent/guardian must come to the YMCA to sign up their teen for this membership if they do not already have one.
