This is a FREE, supervised space where activities are geared towards kids in 5th-12th grades, but we do welcome younger children if they are accompanied by an adult. Children and adults must check-in with the attendant upon arrival. Participation in this program means access to homework help, a snack, open gym time, and weekly activities. As our program continues to develop, we will be able to offer so much more!

TC Open swim for 10+ only: Children 10-13 will have to take a swimming test to see if they can be in the water without a parent. If they do not pass, Teen Center Staff will NOT be in the water with them, therefore will not be able to swim without a parent. 14+ can be unaccompanied, HOWEVER if the lifeguard notices that they are not strong swimmers they may be asked to leave or have
an adult join them. Be sure to check in at the Y/T Center by 5:55pm if you plan to go to Open Gym time.
