YOUR AFTERSCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
For decades, The Noble County Family YMCA has been serving families through healthy living programs, youth sports, aquatics, summer camp, hunger relief, and afterschool programs for decades. This year, we are excited to provide Y Club, our signature afterschool enrichment program for grades Kindergarten—6th, ages 5-12 years old. This year, the Y Club will be at the Old Junior High building on 901 Elm Street. Students will ride the school bus to this location. Pick-up will be at 901 Elm Street by 6:00pm.
Y Club strives to provide high-level enriching programming coupled with activities that work to engage students on learning concepts essential to their success in school while also encouraging youth to explore and develop to their greatest potential in spirit, mind, and body. With these priorities in mind, this program incorporates healthy and safety conscious policies into our practices, procedures and activities to provide your children with the ideal summer experience. We are looking forward to another incredible year with the youth of Noble County!

BRAND NEW THIS YEAR:
With your child's acceptance into Y-Club, you also get a FREE family membership at the Noble County YMCA during the 2023-2024 school year, as long as your child is attending the Y-Club program. In addition to the free membership, your child and every youth in your household gets one free season of youth sports OR set of swim lessons.
OUR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PHILOSOPHY:
Our programs will create a space where kids are accepted for who they are, supported and encouraged to explore the world around them.
Youth will be surrounded by positive role models dedicated to creating a safe and fun environment where kids can be free to discover new interests, safely venture outside their comfort zone with support and guidance, and forge lasting friendships.
We are creating pathways and scaffolding for youth to grow more resilient, confident and hope-driven skills that will help them take on the challenges of life beyond their summer experience.
The Y will be a force of good for our program participants, counselors and our Noble County family, where the focus is always on character, families, and our community.
Fees, Subsidy, & Scholarship
Y Club is part of the Oklahoma State Department of Education’s Elementary & Secondary School Emergency Relief Initiative. This initiative seeks to address the needs of students most disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, providing high-quality afterschool and out-of-school time enrichment on an equitable and accessible basis. Aligning with the YMCA’s Non-Profit foundation, this state initiative allows us flexibility to offer multiple payment options for families of all backgrounds. As such, each application for Y Club is processed by a staff member who will then reach out to you about your family’s specific options.
Payment Options Include:
· Private Pay
· ESSER Subsidy
· DHS Childcare Subsidy
· YMCA Scholarship
SCHOOL DAYS OUT
The Y offers single day camp sessions on days when school is out (dates as listed above). School Days Out is a program that allows your child a fun day away from school where they can still learn new skills through creative activities, develop friendships, and explore the natural world.
School Days Out registrations are separate from Y Club and must be taken care of at the front desk of the Noble County Family YMCA one week prior to that day of program. Payment will be required at the time of registration. If two days prior to the School Day Out session, registration does not meet a minimum of 7 kids, the session may be cancelled.
Kids will need to wear weather-appropriate clothes for outdoor activities, closed-toe shoes, and bring a backpack with lunch, swimsuit, towel, and a refillable water bottle.
