Need a one-night getaway for some self-care or a date night? Leave the kiddos with us for our Parents' Night Out event!

On Friday, May 17th, the YMCA will be hosting a Parents' Night Out, where parents can leave their children with our caring and professional Youth Development team so they can hit the town! Your kiddos will get to enjoy games in our Child Watch/Kid's Adventure area, go swimming in the Recreation/Therapy pool, enjoy dinner, and then wind down with arts & crafts and a movie!

This event is for YMCA members only.


Parents' Night Out will run from 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. for children ages 3 months to 12 years.

We are not accepting children outside of these age ranges for this event at this time.

Dinner will only be provided for children ages 2 years and older.

If your child requires diapers, wipes, or other supplies, please provide these to the YMCA staff during drop-off. We do not provide diapers, but our staff will change diapers as necessary.

Note: Child Watch/Kids' Adventure will be unavailable during Parents' Night Out in order to support the event.


Upcoming program dates: Parents' Night Out will not return until August 2024.

Registration is open now!

Cost: $35 per child

Registration can be done online using the link in the sidebar or by calling us at 309.827.6233 and speaking with a Membership Services team member!

Spaces for the event are limited.


Will my kids need anything other than a swimsuit? Kids ages 3 months through 1 year will need to have food provided for them, as well as any other necessities they may need (diapers, wipes, spare clothes, etc.) Kids ages 3 months - 3 years will not be swimming out of an abundance of safety precautions to ensure that we are keeping all children safe, therefore children within this age range do not require swimwear. Kids aged 4-12 will only need a swimsuit and towel. It is recommended that kids bring a water bottle, but it is not a requirement. For kids ages 2 - 12 years, dinner will be provided.

When should I drop off and pick up my child? Are they required to stay the whole time? The program will run from 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. You are able to drop your child off as early as 4 p.m. and should pick your child up no later than 9 p.m. You are able to drop off or pick up at any time between these hours. However, we recommend that you drop your child off before 4:30 p.m. to avoid them missing out on any programming and fun activities!

What will my child be eating for dinner? Dinner will be provided for kids 2 to 12 years and will most likely change for every Parents' Night Out, but you can count on something that your child will love! Pizza, pasta, sandwiches and anything in-between. If your child has any dietary restrictions or allergies, then please note this on their registration form and confirm with staff upon drop-off.
