Healthy Futures Family

Healthy Futures Family provides an opportunity for families to gather together for dinner and fun activities.  This program helps to strengthen ties as a family; it is a regularly scheduled opportunity that includes a well-balanced meal and helps to incorporate healthy choices into everyday family habits. 

As part of our association-wide Healthy Futures Initiative, the entire family can participate in crafts, games, and activities that focus on increasing movement.  The Healthy Futures Family Program also features take home recipes and handouts to help maintain healthy habits at home.  Events are open to the entire community ($5/adult & $3/child under 13).

Child Watch & Kids Club
Are you craving a workout but can’t find child care?  Members with family or single-parent memberships can take advantage of free Child Watch for up to two consecutive hours.  There is a $5.00 charge for Program and Youth Members.  Parents must remain in the facility, and only the parent who signed the child in is authorized to release the child from supervised care.

Kids ages six through ten are eligible for Kids Club, with the same prices/guidelines as above.  Here, your child can get moving, play games, or get creative with arts and crafts while socializing with others their own age.  And you can work out or have some in-branch time for yourself!

Schedules are kept under "Posted Hours" on your branch schedules page.

Classes are available for your children while they are in the Child Watch Program for a nominal daily cost.  Register at the Member Service Desk or online.
