Elementary School - Before/After School

Welcome

The Lincoln YMCA offers a lot of opportunities for your child to be active and productive before and after school. Each program has something unique to offer. Find your school below and see what programs work best for you.

Adventure Club

Adventure Club is a licensed Before and After School child care program offered through the Lincoln YMCA for children attending Kindergarten through 5th grades at select elementary schools. This program is a fun convenient way for children to spend the hours before and after school. Children are supervised by positive adult role models who focus on developing the YMCA character values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility.

CLC

Continuing our mission of developing youth in need, the Lincoln YMCA is proud to serve as the lead agency at several Community Learning Center (CLC) sites across Lincoln. These before and after school programs provide a safe place for youth to stay engaged, healthy and active.
