Hemby Program Center

Did you know that the Brace Family YMCA is located just two and a half miles from a 21-acre outdoor oasis?

Nestled in the woods of south Charlotte, the Hemby Program Center provides limitless opportunities for children, families, schools, organizations and members of our community. Local students, whether they attend a nearby school or are part of a homeschool program, have the opportunity to learn about the great outdoors. Through engaging hands-on experiences, children explore nature and discover how plants, animals and humans interact to create our ecosystem.

We make the most of the natural beauty of southeast Charlotte. We’re proud to feature:

  • Wooded hiking trails
  • Archery Ranges
  • 50-foot Alpine climbing tower with giant swing
  • Challenge course
  • Two outdoor swimming pools
  • Three athletic fields
  • Covered basketball courts
  • Open-air chapel

The YMCA is committed to helping children grow up happy and healthy. In order to make a positive impact on youth in the area, we facilitate the following programs:

Our facilities capture the magic of overnight camp but offer the flexibility of a day camp. Campers will make unforgettable memories and experience a true outdoor adventure as they enjoy access to our wilderness amenities.

Our preschool is carefully designed to give children the skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Through play-based learning and plenty of outdoor fun, our preschoolers begin to learn to read, solve problems and communicate effectively.

Hemby provides the perfect environment for kids to connect and learn after school. Children are able to become more active as they make friends and become more confident in themselves.

Learning, friendships, fitness and fun — discover all that you’d expect and more in a Homeschool partner at the Y! Committed to youth development, it makes sense that the Y is a wonderful partner to come alongside your homeschool efforts.
