YMCA: Our Purpose
We strengthen our community by connecting people to their potential, purpose and each other.
Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body.
At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
Find out about our Group Exercise Classes, Wellness Center, Massage, Walking Track and more.
At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success.
That’s why our child care programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other.
If you’re craving a central place to do more of what you love, The Landing is all you need to gather, move and grow—under one roof.
Make yourself at home. Come and go as you please. Find community, continue to learn and explore every facet of health, and with your 55+ All Access Membership, enjoy the features and facilities of the YMCA.

YMCA Youth Programs emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork and fun. We strive to develop great players and even better people. And we emphasize the development of character: Caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
At the Y, kids develop all of their skills, from catching and dribbling to martial arts, cooking and nature exploration. Just as important, they learn firsthand the benefits of being healthy and active and that virtual games just can't compare to the real thing. We value each child’s potential!
