Rating: 5 stars  

Our children went to the Youth Center when they were young for a few years after school and also enjoyed the summer camps as well. My husband and I were very appreciative and impressed by the staff, programs and overall facility. Would recommend this Center to anyone who looking to send their children to a safe and loving environment.
