Summer Opportunities

Kids & Teens

Opportunities abound for youth and teens at the New Castle Community YMCA! This summer join us and enjoy a full line-up of activities geared toward youth age 12 through 18. 

Summer Youth Memberships

Youth age 12-18 can join with a special summer membership that gives them access to all membership benefits at both locations, including a special line-up of youth activities during the summer. Summer Youth Memberships are just $45 for the summer, Memorial Day through Labor Day, with no join fee. Anyone wishing to continue their membership beyond Labor Day can do so at the monthly amount appropriate for their age. Ask for details at the membership services desk or by calling 724-658-4766 (downtown) or 724-658-9211 (Y-Zone).

Youth & Teen Summer Schedule

Don't let your tween or teen sit home bored all summer - the Y offers a variety of fun and exciting activities! Youth and teen members have access to the wellness room (after passing an orientation), gymnasium and pool. Plus, during the summer we offer a full schedule of special programing just for them. Opportunities include classes such as Martial Arts, Hula Hooping, Yoga, Hip Hop, and LIFT Boot Camp. Download the Youth & Teen Summer Schedule for details.

Summer Meal Program

Our downtown branch serves as a Summer Meal Program Site offering free lunch to children and teens age 18 and younger. Children need good nutrition all year long, however when school is out, many children lose access to the meals provided by the school lunch program. That's why we're happy to work in partnership with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to help fill that gap. Beginning June 10 breakfast and lunch will be provided. Lunch will be provided from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and afternoon snack will be from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. All meals are served Monday through Friday at 20 West Washington Street, New Castle, PA 16010. This program is free and open to anyone age 18 or younger. No pre-registration required.
