GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) With students back to class, the everyday routine of families is changing. That means some are looking for alternatives for what to do when the final bell of the school day rings. An affordable and healthy option for kids and teens is your area YMCA.

The YMCA offers after school activities that are focused on growing, learning, and staying active. The programs are supervised and offer a wide variety of subjects. Kids can do their homework and get help from staff in the computer lab, then head to the gym for a game of basketball, or some pool, foosball, or air hockey. The YMCA also has after school events as well as day camps and trips for during school breaks.

Check with your local YMCA location to see what they offer and for pricing.
