Birthday Parties For Kids | YMCA Washington DC | Virginia | Maryland

Birthday Parties

Host the best birthday party at the Y! Let the Y family do everything for your child’s special day. The Birthday Party Team will ensure a fun-filled celebration with decorations, games, activities, and much more. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the most memorable birthday party of the year.

Our parties include a birthday team member to host the party, awesome activities, basic decorations, water, and paper products. Each party is approximately 2 hours long: 1.5 hours of fun structured activities with 15 minutes of set up and 15 minutes of time to clean up.

*As an added bonus, we have pre-made invitations customized to each party free of charge. Upon reserving your party, we would be more than happy to send this PDF to you via email if requested.


Enjoy the Y’s very own classic party where we keep the kids happy with age-appropriate games such as capture the flag, engaging activities and tons of assorted entertainment.

Be the star of your very own Sports Party where we will play your favorite sports and fun games. The Birthday Party Team will ensure age-appropriate games are chosen for the birthday boy or girl to enjoy their day as the MVP.

Go! Let’s do it! Cheer on all your friends at the Y’s Cheer Party. This party includes everything from cheers and chants to safe stunts. At the end, everyone can watch as we perform a rock-star routine!

Slide into your dancing shoes and boogie down at our Dance Party! At the Dance Party, you will learn cool hip dance moves to your favorite songs! The birthday boy or girl can choose their favorite style of dancing (hip-hop, country, pop, ballet, etc.) and everyone will be jamming along with them.

Invite your friends to join in creating edible treats during this fun and yummy one-hour cooking session. Our Birthday Team will provide everything necessary. All you need are your taste buds!

Is your child full of star power? Join us for a Hollywood Party at the Y where you will get pampered and glamorous like the true celebrity that you are. After receiving your V.I.P. treatment, we will put on our very own show-stopping performance for all our family and friends. (Ask us about our Rock Star Party)

BLAST OFF! Are you a superhero or want to become one?! At our Super Hero Party, you will play superhero games and activities and bring home a superhero cape. Join us for a heroic adventure as we defeat bad guys at our superhero training camp.

Create, explore and explode at the Mad Science Party. At the Mad Science Party, you will get to put on your safety goggles and create your own science experiments. Everyone at your party will leave with something fun to show their friends back at home.

We also have specialty themed birthdays that fit the season! For more information about the theme’s in season, please call your local branch. (Example: Summer Splash Theme – Everyone gets the chance to get a little wet by playing a handful of water games such as water balloon tosses, water tag, and much more!)

What’s your favorite theme? Is it Star Wars? Art? Wherever your imagination takes you, the Y Birthday Team will take care of the rest. Give us a theme and we can create the best party under the sun.
