Friday Family Fun Nights at the Lionville Community YMCA

Family fun at the Lionville YMCA

Fun activities that'll actually have kids looking forward to hangin' with the fam!

We understand how hard it can be to get kids to want to participate in family activities — especially when they hit those tween years. But the reality is, when they reach adulthood, family nights are the times they’ll remember fondly. So how do you get your kids to join in and actually look forward to family nights? By planning events that are actually fun and worth doing, right here at the Y!

Whether you need one good idea or a dozen, we have creative activities to keep you and your kids entertained. Friday Family FUN Nights at the Y are a wonderful way for families to learn, grow and thrive, together. The right activities can encourage your family to interact with one another more — instead of always being attached to your phones, laptops or iPads.

Friday Family Fun Nights are from 6 to 8 pm and are FREE for YMCA family members. So invite your friends (just use your free guest passes) and join us at the Y!
