Help your kids stay active when school is out! Don’t worry about who will watch the kids or feel guilty about your students spending all day playing video games. Dynamite Days Out is the BEST way to spend the day!

This program is offered when school is out of session in the Mattoon & Cumberland School Districts. Days include Winter Break and Spring Break! Reservations are required for this program.

Your kids will enjoy games, sports, arts & crafts, STEAM activities, movies, swimming and other fun activities at the Mattoon Area Family YMCA and Neal Center YMCA. Students are able to participate in field trips to local community partners such as nursing homes, the Mattoon Public Library or the Fit-2-Serve gardens! Weather permitting, we may be outdoors, so children should dress appropriately.

Everyone must bring a sack lunch, two snacks, water bottle, and a swim suit and towel if they wish to swim (this is optional). Dynamite Days Out are NOT included with the Before/After School Program and will require registration and payment prior to child’s attendance. This is a CCR&R approved program.

Members- $28 per child per day
Non-Members- $33 per child per day
