The Arthur Youth Center serves children ages 6 weeks – 12 years engaging them in development activities while parents utilize the YMCA’s facilities.
Due to social distancing requirements, the Martha Guy Child Development Center and Arthur Youth Center have been combined into one larger space in Suite 110 of the Sloop Medical Plaza Lobby. Drop in childcare is available Monday – Friday from 4:00-7:00pm and Saturdays from 8:00am-12:00pm.
Glen and Carol Arthur have been both close friends and long-time supporters of the YMCA and many other causes in Western North Carolina, both though their personal gifts and through their family foundation. Martha Guy was a native of Avery County and lived here, except for her years at school. She was a tireless advocate for western North Carolina, including our YMCA.
