Celebrating a Century of Youth Development

Our legacy of providing fun and meaningful activities began in the 1920s. Over the years, we’ve watched children grow through our programs, camps, and recreational sports. Our programs help children gain confidence, develop new friendships, and learn valuable lessons in teamwork and responsibility.


FIRST® LEGO® League introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to children grades 1-9 through fun, exciting hands-on learning.

Girls on the Run®

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.


Taekwondo is a Korean martial art and Olympic sport which strives to teach courtesy, self control, integrity, perseverance and strong spirit.


EmBe Youth Volleyball program provides kids an opportunity to learn the skills of the game in a recreational, non-competitive, environment.

FIRST LEGO League Robotics Camp

FIRST LEGO League Robotics camps give kids a hands-on experience that combines STEM education with the excitement of building and programming LEGO robots. Participants will engage in problem-solving challenges while having a blast with robotics. We offer no-school and summer one-day camps plus two-day boot camps.


During the 5-day camp, rising 3rd – 5th-grade girls will enjoy interactive games, being physically active, and expressing creativity through arts.

Babysitting Camp

Learn about being an entrepreneur, develop people skills and build confidence as an empowered Babysitter!

Junior Lifeguard Camp

Junior Lifeguarding camp includes an introduction to first aid, CPR, and AED skills, hands-on training from head guards and managers and participants will shadow lifeguards at the Sioux Falls City pools.
