Before and Afterschool Care: Where Learning Meets Fun!

Experience the Eugene YMCA's exceptional Before and After School Care program, designed to provide a safe, nurturing and engaging environment for children before and after the school bell rings. Our program offers a seamless blend of learning, recreation, and character development, ensuring that your child's time with us is both enjoyable and enriching.

Before school, kids can start their day with stimulating activities that set a positive tone, while after school, they can unwind, socialize, receive academic support and participate in diverse, enriching activities that foster growth and creativity. With dedicated staff members, a focus on building valuable life skills, and a commitment to creating lasting memories, the Y's Before and After School Care is the ideal choice for parents seeking an extension of their child's educational journey beyond the classroom.

The Y is the largest child care provider in Lane County. 

Camp 2024 and 2024-25 School Year Registration

April 22nd - 24th -Currently Enrolled Child Care Families
Registration for Summer Camp 2024 and the 2024-25 School Year will open to current child care families (families who are enrolled in a CONTINUOUS Eugene YMCA child care program through April 2024).
Registration will be available on our website, at 6:30am.

April 25th - April 30 - Facility Family Member
Registration for Summer Camp 2024 and the 2024-25 School Year will open at this time to youth with an active Facility Membership. Registration will be available on our website, at 6:30am.

For summer camps:  members must keep their membership active until the beginning of the week for which they are registered. Should a member decide to terminate their membership before the start of any camp week, they will forfeit their place in all subsequent weeks of camp. 
For school-year child care programs:  membership must be sustained through October 31, 2024. Any termination of membership before this date will result in unenrollment from the child care program for the remaining months of the school year. 

We believe the Y can have the greatest impact on families and children through consistent connections and intentional relationship building, connections beyond seasonal programs such as camp and afterschool.  Therefore, our policy aims to prioritize enrollment in camp and afterschool programs with those families who have the most consistent connection with the Y by offering early registration benefits. By implementing a policy that fosters a deeper connection between Y membership and Y program participation we believe children will achieve new heights as they experience deeper connection, more consistent mentoring and education, and elevated access to not only terrific seasonal programs, but to world-class tools and resources at the new Y.

May 1st - Everyone
Registration for Summer Camp 2024 and the 2024-25 School Year will open and be available on our website, at 6:30am.
