The summer months are just around the corner. Summer is meant to be filled with learning enrichment, new experiences, and making new friendships and memories that can last a lifetime. At the Y, we focus on programs that allow children to explore and get involved in activities that help them grow both mentally and physically.

Options available for all ages and many schedules and interests. Click here for more information, session dates and times, or to register.

Looking for a traditional resident camp experience? We have all that and more at the 400-acre Memory Maker YMCA Camp Hanes.


Upcoming Training for Volunteer ESL Tutors

Do you love to learn and help others learn? Do you have 3 hours a week to volunteer? Help an adult learn English as a second language!

We provide training, materials, and on-going support. We will match you with a learner whose schedule fits yours – and you can meet at one of our tutoring rooms (Robinhood Road Family YMCA, Fulton Family YMCA, Winston Lake Family YMCA, William G. White. Jr Family YMCA) or at a public library. Volunteers meet 3 hours each week with a learner. No Spanish necessary! We have learners from over 20 countries, including China, Korea, Burma, Vietnam, Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador…some are just beginners and some have studied English for years and just need help with conversation and pronunciation.

Make Back to School Bright! Volunteer for YMCA Bright Beginnings

Make Back to School Bright! Volunteer for YMCA Bright Beginnings

Each year in the days leading up to the first day of school, YMCA volunteers take children who would otherwise not be prepared back to school shopping. More than 120 underprivileged children from several Kernersville-area elementary schools will go back-school-shopping through the Kernersville Family YMCA Bright Beginnings Program. The children are also provided with a new, donated backpack stuffed with essential school supplies.

Many of us remember picking out a brand new backpack, outfit and purchasing supplies to get ready for the first day of school each year. Parents struggling to make ends meet cannot provide that experience, but we can still help children start the school year ready for success and make back to school special. Each year, the Y works with the staff at Caleb’s Creek, Cash, Kernersville, Piney Grove, Sedge Garden, and Union Cross Elementary Schools to identify the students who are most in need.

This year’s Bright Beginnings is taking place Saturday, August 16.

Community members can get involved in YMCA Bright Beginnings by donating and volunteering.

Click here for the volunteer contract, and here for a list of school supplies needed by grade. Call 336 996 2231 and ask for Kasey Elliott for more info about how you can help!
