One of the most valuable services the YMCA of the Inland Northwest provides is Child Watch. Child Watch is a child care service for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. You may bring your children to Child Watch for up to two hours a day while you exercise or participate in programs. Child Watch is for available for those with Family Memberships only. On your child's initial visit to Child Watch please complete a registration form that gives staff some background information about your child. To sign your child into Child Watch, present the staff with yours and your child's membership card. This way we can identify you as the parent or guardian and ensure your child's safety.
Family Activity Center (FAC)
At the Y, we bring families together and encourage healthy living. The Family Activity Center (FAC) was created for families to have fun and grow together. In the FAC, you can have fun and get fit while exercising on the Exerbike. The interactive Xbox 360 KinectTM has active games where you can river surf and dance as much as you want with the instructional dance pad system. A pool table, ping pong table, board games and a one-of-a-kind Nintendo WiiCubeTM are available for your family to check out. Hang out and relax in front of a big-screen TV and feel free to make yourself at home in the Family Activity Center. Please see Member Services for more information.
