At the Y, strengthening community is our cause.   We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come
about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.

FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

FOR HEALTHY LIVING

FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Fitness

At the Y, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier. Members often cite the support and enthusiasm of fellow participants and staff as some of the key factors in their achievement of greater well-being. We offer classes for all ages, all levels and all interests. From low-impact exercise and chair classes, stretching and strength training to indoor cycling, water exercise, and yoga, you’ll find a group class that’s fun, supportive and keeps you moving.

Aquatics

Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. We offer swim lessons, family swim, competitive swimming and swim programs for kids with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment. What would the Y be without water? Water exercise, adult swim lessons (it’s NEVER too late) and adapted exercise for those with disabilities are some of the water-based activities you’ll find at the Y where we believe if you can do it on land, you can do some version of it in the water!

Child Care

Children are like sponges – they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. We offer quality full-day and partial-day child care for infants through preschoolers, enabling parents and family members to go to work knowing their children are in safe, stimulating environments.

School Age Child Care

With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement, Y school age programs serve kindergartners through middle schoolers with a variety of programs and activities to explore and develop their interests and talents. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Youth & Adult Sports

At the Y, we believe sports and fun go hand in hand. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. That’s why we offer so many sports and activities at the Y. With a game or sport to offer almost everyone, there’s no such thing as being too young or too old to get in the game.

Summer Day Camp

Summer Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Camp teaches a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership, while giving children the opportunity to create lasting friendships.

We’re More Than A Gym.
We’re A Cause.
