School Age Program

The YMCA of Hagerstown provides before and after school programs at many elementary schools in Washington County. Depending upon the daily schedule at each school, a morning program may or may not be offered. Registration for the program is done in person at the YMCA. Because the program is licensed through the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), there are forms and health inventories that must be completed in order for your child to attend. The full packet necessary for registration and attendance can be found here. The programs also participates with Maryland EXCELS and accepts State of Maryland childcare vouchers.
