Activities & Programs

  • YMCA's SPLASH Program provides an opportunity for 2nd graders from low-income elementary schools to learn basic life-saving swim skills through a free six-week program at the Y.

    Many of the participants have never experienced swimming, so the Y conducts a yearly swimsuit drive in August to ensure everyone can participate without incurring costs.

    SPLASH is offered at select schools in Wichita, Augusta and El Dorado from September-May each year.

  • Chess Club is for 4th & 5th graders and meets Thursday afterschool from 3:30 to 4:30pm.

  • Starbase is a science-based program held on McConnell Airforce base for this area.  They provide an experience for our 5th graders that incorporates science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning.  Our students attend the Starbase classroom 5 days and learn through a "hands on, minds on" fashion.
