J.A. Walters Family YMCA
J.A. Walters Family YMCA is one of those places where you will always be able to take your kids for a healthy and worthwhile experience. There is a huge range of different activities which can be enjoyed and they don’t have to be just for kids. The Family YMCA is focused on providing a meaningful and healthy experience for the whole family.
The YMCA complex is one of the largest entertainment areas in North Georgia. It includes swimming pools, a gymnasium, kids fun zone with inflatables and other games, a food court and a multi purpose room which can be used as a venue for birthday parties or for after school child care. These facilities are all indoors, so can be used year round. The outdoors faciliites include a putting green, a playing field and a playground.
The indoor venues can be used for aerobics classes, fitness sessions or simply enjoyed as they are by individuals, families or groups. The whole indoor complex occupies a massive 52,000 square feet and is the largest of its kind anywhere in North Georgia.
The multi purpose room can be reserved for special events such as kids birthday parties or for any other occasion when a group event is scheduled. Smaller kids can make use of the Kids Fun Zone during the birthday party and anyone older can use the heated indoor pools at the same time all year round. If you are thinking of hosting one of your kids’ birthday parties at the YMCA, be sure to make reservations well in advance.
Another useful feature at the YMCA is being able to leave your kids at the center after school. There is a range of activities for them to be involved in which will challeng them mentally and physically. They can use the extra hour or two for exercise or getting on with their homework. The after school packages are specifically for those families whose kids go to one of the Hall County schools. The age levels considered are school age children up to 12 years of age.
You can opt for an odd day or two each week, or up to five days a week knowing that your kids will be safe and well looked after while you are busy at work or in town. The after school care for older kids is known as the Kids Club and is specially designed to allow for a less restrictive and prescriptive formula. These after school care sessions start at 9 in the morning to 1 pm and again from 3.30 to 8 in the afternoon and evening. Saturday sessions and Hall County school holidays are also included, but mornings to 1 pm only.
The J.A. Walters Family YMCA actively encourages families to get involved in the YMCA’s activities. You can do this by volunteering, participating on family days or providing sponsorship. The YMCA operates in conjunction with Hall County elementary schools and welcomes any input from parents and family in the activities organized by the YMCA for elementary age children. The activities organized are designed to help academic progress and retention throughout.
