Afterschool Care

Richland County School District One Y-Club Afterschool

The Y-Club Afterschool Program is a fun place to be with lots of positive staff interaction and learning opportunities. We provide a healthy afterschool snack, physical fitness time, homework help and a wide variety of other activities, including STEM and time to socialize with friends or play games. Those who qualify for a sibling rate or free/reduced lunch rate must register at the YMCA – discounts are not available online.

Hours

School dismissal – 6 p.m.

When there is a half day at school, we will still hold afterschool at the time of dismissal. In-service days and student holidays are included in regular weekly fees, except for holiday breaks (Winter Break and Spring Break) are registered and paid for separately. During No School Days, it is necessary to consolidate sites due to enrollment and site availability. You must register by the Friday before so that staff can prepare and we must have a minimum of 10 participants to hold a No School Day or Holiday Camp. Your site director will provide information regarding No School Day care. Please note that weekly fees are not prorated at any time during the school year.

The YMCA is committed to providing quality programs to all children and families regardless of their financial circumstances. The YMCA strives to not turn anyone away due to an inability to pay and offers financial assistance through our Annual Campaign Open Y Scholarship Program. Scholarships are only available to families who are not using a 3rd party subsidy and are current members of the YMCA. To receive Open Y Scholarship Rate, the Open Y Scholarship form must be completed and returned with the required documentation. You must have an active family membership with the YMCA of Columbia to qualify for the Open Y Scholarship Program. Download the Open Y Scholarship Form.
