Y birthdays are fun for kids and easy for families! Check out the top 5 reasons to host your next birthday at the Y:

  1. Birthday parties at the Y are fun.
    Sure, it sounds pretty obvious, but it’s true! Kids love every type of party we offer, so we can promise that your birthday kid and their guests will love celebrating with us.
  2. We've got options.
    No matter what your birthday buddy is into, with 8 options, we've got a party for them! Try a new party each year. Zany Zone: Spend time in tumbling, climbing and sliding in our play area! Jump Around: Get ready for inflatables. Big Splash: It's time to swim! Need we say more? Game On!: Sports and games galore led by our skilled Y staff. The Great Art Party: Show-off that creativity. Super Science: Hands-on science with knowledgeable adults to guide exploration. Kitchen Creations: Who doesn't love cooking and baking their own food? Climb Up!: Kids get the guidance to safely experience rock climbing with our trained staff.
  3. All you have to do is show up.
    A YMCA Party Host helps to make your party a hit, so you can actually enjoy it, too. From check-in to facilitating games to taking photos and serving cake, our hosts are here to make the day fun and carefree.
  4. We even decorate and clean-up!
    By the time you arrive, the party room will be decorated with table cloths, streamers or banners, tables and chairs, plus a special Y t-shirt for the birthday child. When the party is over, you're free to go, while our staff clean up the mess. As easy as cake!
  5. The price is right.
    Hosting your child's birthday party at the Y is not only fun and easy, but it's also affordable. Plus, if the guest of honor is a YMCA facility member, you'll save with a reduced member rate!
