YMCA Youth Cresset

Back to Activities

YMCA Youth Cresset holds open access drop in sessions for young people aged 11-18 in Bretton, Peterborough. Take part in creative activities, skill building, sports, and more!

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • You can interact socially with other young people;
  • You have opportunities for creative skills-building;
  • It’s a space to relax and wind down.

“I really like the freedom.”

“I’m coming back here for my birthday next week!”

What to expect

YMCA Youth Cresset is a safe space for young people to engage in positive activities, socialise, and build new skills.

You can expect an open and welcoming environment when you come to the space. The YMCA youth workers are dedicated to working alongside young people to create an engaging and enriching programme of activities.

Their programme of activities is based entirely on suggestions and consultations with local young people. Examples of previous activities include:

  • Film screening
  • Mural design/painting
  • Pizza decorating
  • Music production
  • CV workshop
  • Boxersize
  • Ping pong
  • Street dance
  • Bracelet-making
  • Theatre-making

If you have an idea for an activity you either want to run or be a part of, please let them know.

These drop-in sessions take place every Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:30-6pm in term time, and 12-6pm during school holidays. Please join this free programme by filling in the sign-up form here.
