Great things happen when we support each other!

A huge "thank you" goes out to everyone who supported the Y's 2017 Send a Kid to Camp campaign! Your generous gifts have helped ensure that at this VERY moment, children from all financial backgrounds are having a ball at Y summer camp! They are exploring the great outdoors, dabbling in arts and crafts, and learning their new BFF’s favorite color. They're busy climbing, laughing, playing, discovering, adventure-ing... you know, enjoying all the best parts of being a kid!

If you see our campers in action this summer - happy, healthy, and engaged - you’ll see just how much is possible when we support each other.

Thank you!

With hundreds of exercise classes, Stay & Play for the kids while you exercise, the best equipment, 18 pools (including our outdoor pools at the Ys in Arnold and Pasadena, and our new splash pad at the Hill Y in Westminster), 6 rock walls, family game rooms, fun monthly events, Parents Night Out and more, the Y is your place for healthy activity and family fun - all wrapped up in a welcoming, friendly environment!
