“Had a Clip ‘n Climb party for our daughters 9th birthday. Kids had a great time, plenty of staff on hand to assist. Matthew was our host in the party room and he was great. Highly recommend. Will definitely be booking our next party with the YMCA. Thank you to everyone who made the day so stress free!”
