Thanks to support from generous donors, our Teen Center has been upgraded with some exciting new equipment that encourages movement and fun for the whole family!
The space is now home to six pieces of “exergaming” equipment, or video game-based exercise, including the iWall (a motion-based system similar to the Xbox Kinect), the T-Wall (a colorful hand-eye coordination board), a dance game, a heavy-ball game, an exercise bike-powered Xbox, and a floor game.
- Monday – Friday (10am-8pm)
- Saturday (9am – 2pm)
- Sunday (12-4pm)
- When the doors are open, the teen center is open. If the doors are closed, the teen center is closed. If Teen Center isn’t staffed, please ask Welcome Center for assistance in changing games, etc.
Rules of the Space
The Skagit Valley Family YMCA Teen Center provides youth, teens, and families with a safe and fun environment where they can develop healthy relationships with both their peers and Y staff while engaging in a wide variety of activities.
In order to ensure a positive experience for all who enter the Teen Center, we first and foremost expect all people in the space to always act respectfully. Teen Center users are to behave in a mature, responsible way encompassing the YMCA core values of respect, responsibility, honesty, and care. The following rules are non-negotiable:
- Aggressive behavior such as physical violence of any kind, including verbal put downs, inappropriate language, bullying, roughhousing, and disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated.
- Users will follow directions given by Teen Center staff regarding safety, rules and activities.
- The Skagit Valley Family YMCA has authority to terminate and/or dismiss any person in the space whose behavior doesn’t comply with YMCA guidelines.
- No food or drink is allowed in the space
- During peak times, please share the games with others in the space.
For kids ages 0-7, a parent/guardian must remain with the child while in the Teen Center. For kids ages 8-12, they may be in the Teen Center alone as long as a parent/guardian is in the building. Teens ages 13 and older can be in the space on their own.
