The Y’s teen programs and activities provide opportunities for youth to realize who they are and what they are capable of achieving, all while making friends and memories along the way.
At the Wenatchee Valley YMCA, teens are valued and recognized for their potential as being happy, healthy, and productive community members. The Y offers programs for teens to build self-esteem and self-confidence, learn healthy lifestyle choices, achieve their personal and educational goals, and create new friendships and lasting relationships in a safe, supportive and engaging environment.
The safety and welfare of every child in our facilities is of the utmost importance for the Y administration. To that effect, the following policy will help us protect and care for your child while they are with us. All members under age 13 must be in a structured activity, such as Kid Zone, Child Watch, Teen Center, Youth Sports, Open Youth Swim, Swim Lessons, or directly supervised at all times by an adult family member, age 18 and older.
Members 13 and older may use the gymnasium, or Teen Swim when available. Youth ages 11 - 15 are permitted in the Fitness Center with direct and constant supervision of a parent or legal guardian.
Youth ages 12-15 (or grades 6-9) must complete Uplift to be permitted in the Fitness Center or allowed to participate in adult Group Exercise classes without a parent or guardian.
The Teen Center is for youth in grades 6th-12th only and during specific Teen hours.
Members 16 and older may use the Y facility and services without parental supervision.
