Homeschool Gym and Swim


Homeschool Gym and Swim

At the Harrisburg Area YMCA, it is our desire to provide quality programs and services to youth and families in the community. Homeschooling your children is a great undertaking for a parent, and the YMCA wants to help ease that burden by providing weekly extracurricular activities for your child or children to participate in. Our Homeschool Gym and Swim program is a great way to give parents a break during the day, and the kids a chance to be active!

Homeschool Gym and Swim promotes lifetime fitness in a positive environment with activities including sports, non-competitive games, and a structured swim program. Youth will enjoy one hour of pool time followed by one hour of swim time, or vice versa. Pool time involved a combination of free time in the water and swim instruction. Gym time allows youth to participate and learn new sports, play a variety of games with other youth, and make new friends!

Homeschool Gym and Swim is available at the West Shore YMCA. Class size is limited and is offered four times throughout the year, during the Fall I, Fall II, Winter, and Spring I sessions. The program is offered weekly in the afternoons and youth ages 6-14 are welcome to participate! To sign your child up for this program, please contact the West Shore YMCA at 717-737-9622.
