Y Leaders Club
The club’s purpose and goals are to enhance the lives of our teens through volunteer efforts, service projects, leadership training, and fun recreational activities.
Teens can experience camping through both overnight and day camp. Whether it’s singing or swimming, nature hikes or computer classes, counselors at YMCA camps lead teens in developing new skills and having fun.
Lifeguard Training & Certification
With our YMCA and American Red Cross lifeguard certification courses you can do just that. Participants will learn lifeguarding skills, how to perform CPR on an adult, child and infant, how to use an AED, and necessary first-aid skills.
The YMCA offers group and private swimming lessons for all teens interested. Trained instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance, and social skills, while guiding students with praise and encouragement.
Competitive Swim Team
The Frederick County YMCA Tidal Force swim team participates in both a summer and a winter league. We compete as a team in scored, dual meets as well as optional invitational meets throughout both seasons.
YMCA karate classes focus on a variety of skills and areas of personal growth, such as self-defense, self-confidence, personal discipline, respect for others and physical conditioning.
