Special Needs

 

The Special Needs Programs at the Summit Area YMCA are thoughtfully designed for children with diverse abilities like communication, social, behavioral and learning differences to thrive in a safe, friendly and supportive environment. Our mission is to encourage, help, build and strengthen healthy physical activity, confidence, social skills and more.

From yoga to structured play dates, to swim arts and crafts, participants can enjoy a variety of activities that promote health, wellness, creative enrichment, socialization and more. Click on a link below to register and/or learn more about available programs:
