Registration is NOW OPEN for the 2023-2024 school year! Spots available at both locations!
We have upgraded to online registration for our Childcare Programs. This will allow you to register for After School Program (ASP), School’s Out Fun Days (scheduled no school days), Holiday Break Camp and Spring Break Camp. You will choose which ASP Sessions and location you would like your children registered for. You will need to set up an account in order to make registration changes, update personal information and add a payment method on file. For ASP you will owe nothing up front besides the one-time registration fee of $25 per child.
The After School Program is a place where children can remain active and engaged during their time out of school – a critical time for all school-age children. The After School Program is open to kids enrolled in kindergarten through 6th grade.
Kids attending Jefferson Elementary & North Iowa Christian School will be transported to the YMCA in our vans. All other Mason City Public Schools will be bussed.
Clear Creek After School Program meets in the Little Lunchroom. Attendance is taken and kids will have the opportunity to play on the playground & use the gym when available.
Students at both locations will have daily opportunities for physical activity, to improve their study habits and reading skills; gain exposure to the arts; find a love for STEM activities and much more. Kids in our after school program at the YMCA demonstrate improvement in the values, skills, attitudes and behaviors needed for success in school and in life. Kids can achieve, feel a sense of belonging and explore new interests.
At the YMCA our number one priority is the safety of the children. When everybody is safe a lot of fun can be had. One of our favorite sayings for all our youth development programs is Be safe, be kind, have fun!
We have two locations for our After School Program. Mason City Schools meet at the YMCA. Clear Creek students meet at Clear Creek Elementary.
