WHAT IS THE VISION 50 CAMPAIGN?
Priority One: Youth Programs
It is our first priority to find a new home for our childcare center that has been displaced by the construction of the new entry to the Y. We also want to take this opportunity to expand our after school program. These two programs have a strong demand in our community. Currently, we serve 140 youth between the two programs. By repurposing our space we would be able to serve nearly twice as many youth.
Priority Two: Health & Wellness Expansion & Relocation
Currently our cardio room, cycling room, yoga room and aerobic gym are all located on the second floor of the Y. It is our hope to move all of this programming to the main floor in a consolidated "zone" so that those with physical limitations can access all classes and equipment without the need to duplicate offerings in separate spaces. Our existing weight room and cardio room are often at maximum capacity with space around equipment being tighter than safety standards recommend.
Priority Three: Arts & Big Horn Programming
Our arts department has shown tremendous growth over the past two years, providing diverse programs that allow all youth a chance to explore a medium that brings them joy. From pre-school singing and arts classes, to junior high group guitar classes range in size from 8-25 kids in a 200 square foot room. Big Horn Friday all day programming also operates out of this small space and has a waitlist weekly for the maximum 25 spots.
The Sheridan County YMCA has owned Camp Roberts for over 10 years. Our camp has reached a point that many infrastructure projects have surfaced necessitate attention for safety and continuation of programming. The list of projects include a bridge to the pond and remodel of the kitchen and cabins. Our camp serves over 1,000 youth every summer.
