Y-Zone Club of Greater Morristown YMCA to be New Adventure Destination for Middle Schoolers


MORRISTOWN, NJ - There’s a new buzz in town as word spreads about the Y-Zone Club that promises to be the new adventure destination for middle school youth in grades 6 to 8.

Opening September 6, 2016 the Y Zone Club is a place for middle schoolers to thrive as they engage in intramural team sports, confidence-building activities, explore their creativity or just chill with their friends after a structured day at school.

Fun and fitness will abound as sixth through eighth graders pursue current interests and discover new ones in a supervised, semi-structured atmosphere.

Three acres of park-like grounds promise outdoor excitement with sports fields, a gaga pit and a ropes course.
