Are your teens constantly looking for something to do on a Saturday night? Bring them to the Y on the second Saturday of each month. The Bear-Glasgow Family Y transforms into a hangout spot for teens (under staff supervision). Teens can play basketball, take a dip in the pool, workout, do homework or kick back and relax. We recommend you pre-register your teen(s) because space is limited and fills up quickly. A parental waiver is required.
