Our Mission

The YMCA mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Equity Statement

Together, we work to ensure that everyone—regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race, or sexual orientation—is treated equitably.

We do this by building inclusive and joyful environments where all people can reach goals, make friends, and connect to a cause greater than themselves.

Our Focus

At the YMCA, we focus on transforming lives and helping each other achieve goals. We also emphasize making new friends and connecting with our community. The words achievement, belonging, and relationships are intertwined in all we do. Our group exercise classes, gyms, and pools help strengthen physical bodies. However, the Y strives to also strengthen the mind and spirit.

The Y supports the community and seeks to provide the necessary resources to improve and achieve one’s goals. At the YMCA, we are focused on providing the best possible care for your little ones. This can be through our daily childcare opportunities or our summer camp programs. Our childcare programs focus on building essential skills based on age groups and helping your child grow into a well-rounded adult. We have a faculty full of caretakers that will nurture and care for your child while providing them with a learning environment full of fun. Our childcare programs are sure to give your child a strong start and safe place to develop and grow into successful adults.

The Y is a committed and diverse community. It inspires people and families of all ages to achieve their hopes, dreams, and goals. We make an effort to make sure you are in a safe, caring, and vibrant environment.
