Learn, Grow, and Thrive with the Y

The Y is proud to partner with the Northshore School District to provide high-quality, active learning opportunities designed to engage and expand young minds. Through our Before and After-School Enrichment (BASE) program, we provide a safe, caring, and fun environment where kids can participate in sports, arts, STEM, and other hands-on learning activities. 

Registration

BASE is a school year program that typically runs from September through June. Programs are flexible to meet your needs! Families may choose from programs before school, after school, or both and from 1 to 5 days per week.

2022-23 School Year

Online registration is closed, but you may sign up for BASE programs through our registration team. Please fill out this interest form and expect a minimum 72 hour response time. Many of our programs are full or have limited capacity. Typically, it will take 5-7 business days to fully complete your registration and required paperwork to begin care.

Non-School Days

We offer full-day programs from 7:30 am - 5:30 pm during winter, mid-winter, and spring break and some other non-school days for an additional fee. For the 2022-23 school year, we will open registration for non-school days in September.

 

2022-23 School Year Fees per Week
