With over 100 programs available to people of all ages, the Dalton CRA is a community house in its truest sense. We place a strong emphasis on children, families, and their health and well being. We offer various fitness and swim programs for all ages, as well as after school care, sports leagues, holiday celebrations and a wide variety of enrichment programs to our community. Additionally, The Dalton Youth Center (DYC), has several programs to help prepare our young people for life after high school. From the Leader’s Club to the Big Buddies and Special Needs programs, the CRA/DYC teaches our children the meaning of leadership, team work, respect and community service.
