A Summer of Science & Fun!

Parents, we've got you covered with the best preschool summer workshops. Young children love to discover and try everything! The activities are "just the right size" and allowing 3-6 year olds to explore and participate in our workshops, they will learn about summer safety, science, sports, ocean animals, farm animals and a whole lot more.

Five Sense Summer Art Workshop

Art in the Sun at the Coffman YMCA!

Our senses are how we learn about the world. In our Five Senses Art Workshop, your child will be taught and exposed to what they are feeling, imagining, sensing, and interpreting through their sense. This set of art classes will give your child an up close and personal look and awareness of what they are perceiving through art. One sense will be covered each day.For more information, contact Debbie Schock at dschock@daytonymca.org

"World Explorers" Workshop is a great way to teach geography skills and expose children to other cultures. Most importantly, you can nurture a love for exploration and a sense of respect and empathy for other ways of life. Through fun activities and tasty food, you can spark curiosity about other cultures and set the foundation for further exploration.
