Youth Teen & Family

Youth and Teens create memories, learn skills and build confidence as they explore new interests and passions at the Y. We’re committed to helping all kids and teens be their best selves—through programs focused on sports, arts, leadership and family fun.

Family time at the Y is about giving families the opportunities to deepen relationships, develop new skills and interests, improve their health and well being, and connect to the community.

The Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut offers many fun activities for youth, teens and families every month. Please search our schedules for current offerings. For even MORE fun things to do, be sure to check out our calendar!
