2021 YMCA of Greater Nashua Spring/Summer Program Guide – Sessions E & F
Programs are a big part of the YMCA experience; connecting members, giving youth a place to express themselves and burn off energy with friends, and helping others to achieve mental, physical and spiritual goals. We’re happy to be offering them again.
Session F Programs Start the week of June 28 and run for 8 weeks. Registration opens on June 14. Click the button below to research upcoming offerings and to register.
The YMCA Offers a Multitude of Program Format Options
The 8-Week Summer Program Session F Starts June 28 – Registration opens on June 14! Join us for something new. If you like it you can keep it going with another 8-week version in Session A this Fall.
The combination of full session programming, Program Express Terms and NEW block schedule programming are being offered to provide greater flexibility and variety for YMCA Members and the Greater Nashua Community as parents and families navigate the complexities of differing school schedules and the overarching issues of our time within the context to COVID-19. By offering programs in this manner, program participants will be able to more easily register for programs and finish programs even with the possibility of school schedules changing.
FLEXIBILITY: Program Express Terms utilize reduced schedules, allowing us to offer more program options for you to try on a month by month basis. Block programs allow you to choose a time of day that works for you or your family and then get some program variety.
AFFORDABILITY: The fewer week commitments offer a smaller financial commitment to try out programs to determine if it’s a good fit for you or your child.
CUSTOMIZATION: We’ve added program that can be registered during times when your child is attending the YMCA for Child Care Programs held at our YMCA branches and our staff will take them to and pick them up after the program.
Due to current guidelines and policies, there are some things you need to know for this upcoming session, see below for further details. Research our many program offerings and then register for your favorites by clicking the button below.
You can search for Express Term programming, when available, specifically, by searching with keyword “Express.” Alternatively, you can search for other program favorites by category, subcategory, age range, time of day, and even by branch.

Program Participant Experience

|STAY HOME IF YOU’RE SICK
If you or anyone in your
household is not feeling well, please stay home.

Use our core values of Caring and Respect and treat each other with kindness as we all navigate our new circumstances
What the YMCA is Doing
Our #1 Priority is to Make Our Facilities as Safe as Possible When We Begin Reopening.
Our facilities have undergone a deep cleaning to prepare for the reopening and although it will look and feel a bit different when you visit the Y next, the adjustments we’ve made to our facilities will help make it safe for everyone to enjoy the benefits of the YMCA.
Below are some of the adjustments we have made:
We have quadrupled our daytime cleaning crew.
There are more sanitizing wipes in the wellness centers and common areas; and we have increased hand sanitizers throughout the buildings. We ask that all members use the cleaning materials provided to wipe down equipment before and after their workout.
Our cardio and strength equipment are now either spaced 6 feet apart or have been taken out of service to promote social distancing.
We have installed plexiglass screens at our Welcome Centers
We have increased all staff training to ensure new State of NH Guidelines are understood and being followed.
We introduced a new member and program registration management software called Personify, that makes it easier to manage your accounts from home.
New Member Engagement Specialists have been added throughout our YMCAs to assist with any questions members may have.
We have removed all YMCA provided personal equipment such as yoga mats, board games and magazines.
All staff will be wearing masks, when in public areas.
We will do brief health screenings for everyone entering the building.
Staff will be asked to stay home if they are sick.
We have used resources from the dozens of sources including: NH Dept. of Health & Human Services; Nashua’s Public Health Dept.; the Centers for Disease Control; and YMCA of the USA. We have had the opportunity to learn from our peers in YMCAs that have recently reopened. All of our policy updates will be very visible on signage as you enter and move within the buildings.
We’ve created a Frequently Asked Questions document. If you have further questions below are your contacts for that information by program group and location.
