Youth and Family Programs at the Lansdowne YMCA

 Class sizes have been limited to allow for physical distancing.  All employees and participants will practice hand hygiene prior to the start of class, masks must be worn throughout the class, and children will not share materials/equipment.

Arts & Humanities

We celebrate diversity and the arts everywhere at the Y. Our arts and humanities program encourages personal expression and the freedom to create, and provides new experiences for kids. Youth can explore and express their creative talents in a healthy and supportive environment for building new skills. Classes help children develop confidence and increased self-awareness as they


participate in problem solving, critical thinking and attention to detail.

Here are just a few of the many classes available to you at the Y:
