Kelly’s Comments: Although I have never actually joined the YMCA, I’ve made use of its Program Membership classes over the years. The McCleskey-East Cobb YMCA has some of the best infant/toddler swim classes that I’ve ever seen (and I’ve been to quite a few). In addition, kids can participate in camps, after-school programs, parents’ day out, art, dance, gymnastics, tennis, basketball, soccer…and the list goes on. There are several classes, leagues, and programs for adults, too (in fact, my sister-in-law teaches a mean Zumba class at this very location..she will put a hurt on you).
