YMCA of Frederick

Fun Zone Kids Center

We are pleased to offer an exciting space for all kids to enjoy. More than ever, busy parents need support. When parents come to the Y for a class, group activity or workout, their kids need a safe, enriching environment where they can build healthy, trusting relationships with other kids and adults. In the Fun Zone, children ages 3 months to 17 years old play under the supervision of caring, trained Y staff.

The Fun Zone is fully supervised during operational hours and is offered free to members. Parents of children eight and under must remain in the building while their children are in the Fun Zone. Reservations are highly encouraged for children under the age of 18-months, as space is available on a first come, first served basis.
