At the Franklin County Family YMCA we are still committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving your health and well-being and giving back and providing support to our neighbors. Although we are unable to provide these services in our facilities, we are able to offer some alternatives to keep you and your loved ones moving and staying active!
Staying connected matters. Our branches may be closed, but the YMCA is here to help you, your family, and our community stay active and engaged. We are excited to offer these free virtual classes during this difficult time.

Want to get crafty with your kids? Here are a few ideas entertaining crafts that use objects from around the house!
Scavenger Hunt: Make a list of items from inside the house to outside in the yard and send those kiddos on a hunt! See who can find the most creative items for "something blue" or "something round".
Toothpick Shapes: Make geometric shapes and designs using toothpicks on a flat surface. Get 3D with your designs and incorporate mini marshmallows to connect your toothpicks together...How tall can you make your tower?
Coffee Filter Paper Flowers: Dye coffee filters with food coloring and water. After they have dried stack multiple filter on top of each other and connect in the center with glue, staple or a pipe cleaner. Pull each layer into a cute little flower tuft. This is a perfect craft for a springtime bouquet!
