Teen, Preteen Fridays at Y

The Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter has invited fourth through 10th graders to spend Friday evenings between 6 and 9 in a “safe and structured environment to socialize and explore their interests,” according to a release. 

Free round-trip transportation to the center, on Gingerbread Lane in East Hampton, will be provided for children who live in Sag Harbor, Bridgehampton, and Southampton.

Fourth through seventh graders, or ages 10 to 13, can participate in a free preteen program that will include activities such as multi-sport games, swimming, craft making, a computer lab, and drone and tech instruction. They will hear from guest speakers, as well.

For those in eighth through 10th grades, or ages 14 to 16, the Youth Leadership Club is a free program designed to help teens improve individual and social skills. Training will be offered in lifeguarding and swim instruction, customer service, youth counseling, and fitness training, among others.
