Additional programs were strong in the 1980s including Youth & Government, parent/child programs like Y Indian Guides & Princesses, child care and camping.  Adults also became more involved as they began working out and joining exercise classes. Even Senior Adults became involved in fitness programs and transportation provided by the Y.
