My son at Claxton Elementary has so enjoyed the programs at YMCA Youth Services at Beaverdam: the climbing wall, the woods with fort-building potential, the huge field, and not to miss, the chickens. He’s even been called “the chicken whisperer”!

Nothing is quite like the camaraderie of a team and building confidence through flipping to victory! OSEGA Gymnastics in Fletcher keeps kids active after school with acrobatics, ninja, and recreational classes every day of the week.

Charlotte Street Kids is an amazing after-school program that my kids have been going to for over six years. They believe in giving kids time for some old-fashioned, unstructured play, with self-directed activities after a long six hours of school each day. They have a snack, get their homework done, and are happy each afternoon when I pick them up.
