Free Kids ZONE

While You Work Out

Kids Zone provides 2.5 hours of safe, nurturing child care for those 7 - 10 years of age. While members utilize our YMCAs. This program is free to all members and provides each child the opportunity to participate in themed curriculum-based activities including STEM, art, music, and more!

Kids Zone attendants are certified in CPR for the Professional Caregiver, AED Procedures for the Professional Caregiver, and First Aid Procedures. All skills are re-certified annually.

Important: Kids Zone is available to YMCA members. Children may be dropped off and picked up by a parent or legal guardian. There is a maximum of two and a half hours per day per child and parents must remain in the facility at all times. It is the policy of the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region that all children, including staff children, regardless of their age, must have their own Youth Membership or be part of a paid One-Adult Household, or Two-Adult Household in order to use the facility, including Learn & Play, and/or register for programs at member rates.

In order to ensure that every child has the best experience possible, the Y requests that children refrain from bringing electronic devices to Kids Zone. This includes mp3 players, tablets, cell phones and portable games.
