Children's Birthday Parties at the Y

The Meadowlands YMCA has a ton of awesome ways to make the most of your child's special day! We make the planning simple by providing an in-house party planner who will work with you to ensure a spectacular event. Our wonderful staff guides party-goers through engaging activities and games that are lots of fun. Our goal is to make sure that your child's party becomes the talk of the town! 

Party Themes

Swim & Gym 

Have the best of both worlds? Combine our two most popular parties and you'll be the host with the most! Guests will enjoy an hour each in the brand new pool, Gatorade gym, and party room. With our heated pool and temperature controlled Aquatics Center, you can book a swimming party any time of the year. (This is special a 3-hour party.)

Pool Party 

Splash and swim away with an birthday pool party like no other! Enjoy our brand new, state-of-the-art Aquatics Center with a series of fun pool games that'll put a smile on everyone's face. With our heated pool and temperature controlled Aquatics Center, you can book a swimming party any time of the year. 

Exergame Party

Host a birthday party that's full of the latest tech for kids! With stations like our virtual reality rower, interactive competitions, rotating rock climbing wall, and much more, an Exergame Party is the perfect option for children who love to play video games or play sports. 

Sports Party

Turn your child’s dream of becoming a pro athlete into a reality! This is your chance to play where the pros have played. Host your sports-themed party in the spectacular Gatorade Gym, which is the former practice facility of the Brooklyn Nets. Select any two options from basketball, flag football, soccer, t-ball, or dodgeball and let the games begin.

Classic Party Games

There is nothing better than good old-fashioned party games! Our staff will guide your guests through simple and fun non-elimination games so everyone’s included. Some of the games may include hot potato, parachute, musical chairs, and pin the tail.

Art Party

Is your child the next Picasso or just enjoys working with paints? Let them explore their creativity alongside their friends. Party-goers will get to make their own wonderful piece of art and then take it home to share their masterpiece with their family. We will theme the project to your birthday child's interests giving the art a personal meaning to your family.


Cooking Party 

Do you have the next Julia Child or Guy Fieri in your family? Then host a cooking party at our brand new cooking studio for their next birtday! Guests will make a traditional Italian meal of pasta from scratch, garlic bread, and a nutritious salad!


It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a birthday party! Your child and their guests will transform into their favorite superhero by designing a cape and training to become their alter-ego.  Party-goers will act out all of their Superhero moves by navigating their way through their Hero's Obstacle Course made of blocks, hula hoops, spots and more. The newly-minted "Superheros" will fine-tune their crime fighting skills through a series of fun agility-based games like balancing their way over “lava” and mastering combat skills. Once completed, each guest will be awarded a Superhero Certificate to show off to their family and friends.

Be a guest at your child's party. We take care of it all!
