Family Nights
Spending time together as a family is one of the best things you can do for your children’s mental and spiritual health. And the Y is here to help. Just think of us as your “quality time provider” during our monthly Family Nights — full of fun, structured activities. Come participate in a Family Night, Kids' Night Out, Y Arts Night or just enjoy playing basketball or swimming together as a family. The Y is the place to be!

Kids' Night Out (ages 3-9)
Of course, taking a short break from family responsibilities can be a boon to your own mental health as a parent. Instead of a babysitter, consider Kids’ Night Out at the Y, where your child(ren) can make new friends and learn fun new games, all under the supervision of our trained child care professionals. Preregistration is required. We request a 24-hour notice for cancellations for a full refund. KNO will be canceled if enrollment is less than 6 children. Parents will be notified by noon that day so please have alternate options if needed. • Pizza and juice box • Movie and a snack • Games, crafts and friends To register for a Kids' Night Out, call Fry at 630.904.9595 or Kroehler at 630.420.6270.

Family Dash (at Kroehler)
Come out and join us every Thursday night from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Kroehler Family YMCA for some family fun. Run through obstacle courses, play games with the kids and meet other families. FAMILY PROGRAMS
