If you’re tired of the same old routine and want to offer your child something truly special, YMCA has the perfect solution for you. Get ready to ignite your child’s passion and creativity with our brand new after school activities, designed to provide a unique and exhilarating experience for children and youth.

We understand that every child is unique and that’s why we’re thrilled to introduce our exciting range of classes and activities, carefully designed to offer something for everyone. Say goodbye to mundane afternoons and hello to a world of adventure, exploration, and personal growth.

For sports enthusiasts to budding artists, to aspiring chefs, we have a wide variety of activities that will capture their interest and inspire them to discover new talents.

Our expertly crafted programme provides a safe and nurturing environment for children aged eleven to 17 to explore their passions and engage in activities that ignite their imagination. With convenient proximity to many schools in the area, including Magnus, Suthers and Newark Academy, our YMCA facility is the ideal location.

From the moment they arrive, your child will be immersed in a vibrant atmosphere buzzing with energy and creativity. They can choose from an array of activities, including sports like climbing, strength and conditioning classes in the gym, athletics, racket sports, cricket, and football, or dive into the arts with dance, drama, and journalism classes. For the curious minds, our programme also offers unique experiences such as eco-club, cooking classes.

We understand that downtime and relaxation are equally important for your child’s overall well-being. That’s why we’ve created a dedicated games room where children can unwind, socialize, and enjoy interactive games, Xbox sessions, board games, and table tennis. It’s the perfect space for them to make new friends and create lasting memories.

At Newark and Sherwood YMCA, safety is our top priority. Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art CCTV, trained first-aiders, and dedicated adult supervision. We also operate a buddy system to ensure that your child feels secure and supported throughout their time with us.

To make this opportunity even more enticing, we’re offering a special promotion exclusively for early sign-ups. Register your child before July 31st, and you’ll receive one month of free membership. It’s an incredible chance to explore our programme and give your child a head start in their journey of discovery.

If you’re looking for something extraordinary for your child after school you can take advantage of a free taster session to find out how your child can enjoy the wide range of activities available.
