Complete details of program policies, procedures, guidelines, dates and times are sometimes omitted from the program guide due to space limitations and time of printing. We apologize for any errors and thank you for your patience and understanding should these situations occur. Please visit our website for updated information: www.bhsjymca.org

HELP US AVOID CANCELLED CLASSES
We cancelled it because we didn’t know you wanted it! Sometimes excellent courses with super instructors are cancelled when too many people wait until the last minute to register. Our courses have to be cost recoverable, and we need a minimum of students enrolled before a class will run. To avoid inconvenience to students, we cancel classes with no (or low) registrations ahead of time. This includes our special events too!
Avoid disappointment...register early!
