[April 25, 2009]  All the kids in the yard yell "WEEEEEEE!" for YMCA Weeball. May 23 is the magic date for this six-week instructional program for children 4 years through kindergarten. What participants will take away from this HOME RUN program are the basic skills necessary to play baseball, including how to throw, catch, hit and run the bases, along with playing an abbreviated game.

Mission Impossible, 007 and Capture the Flag are only some of the scenarios planned for YMCA Paintball. Starting May 16, the YMCA will offer a two-hour, no-impact paintball program that teaches the fundamentals of paintball and how paintball markers work. Participants will work through the process of firing, maneuvering around obstacles and learning how to move and think as a TEAM. All equipment is supplied, with safety as our first priority.

There are only two weeks left to take advantage of early YMCA Summer Day Camp registration. Weekly and daily rates increase after May 6, so hurry and get your kids signed up. Let the YMCA be your place for summer fun. We offer Kid Camp for kindergarten to third grade, Preteen Camp for fourth to sixth grade and Counselor in Training Camp for seventh to ninth grade. All day camps begin June 4. Participants will enjoy craft fun, playing in the park, sports clinic, outdoor fun, water play, daily swimming, guest speakers, various field trips and so much more. Register now as space is limited and fills up quickly.

YMCA Swim Lessons are the place to go for your swimming needs. All lessons are at the Lincoln Elks Club pool, with lesson times available in the morning and evening. We offer a variety of ability levels from 6 months (with parent) to 12 years. Lesson dates for Session A are June 22-July 3; register by June 8 to avoid fee increase. Session B is July 6-17; register by June 22 to avoid fee increase. Session C is July 20-31; register by July 6 to avoid fee increase. Class size is limited, so register early.
