Rock Wall

The Summit YMCA encourages all to try our 500-square-foot climbing wall located in the Hubbard Gym. Our rock wall is an educational tool for our families, schools, and members throughout the year.

Our sole purpose is to provide a unique opportunity that enhances the positive development of our youth and families.  There are three levels of difficulty to challenge all levels of climbers.

Beginners are always welcome.  All members 7 and older are encouraged to attend classes to broaden climbing knowledge and learn techniques to be a more effective climber.

    Do you have a little monkey at home climbing on counters, bouncing on sofa cushions then this is the program for you. This program is for beginning climbers ages 5 & 6 interested in learning the basics on how to climb.

    Classes are 50 minutes long.

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA Summit


The Summit and Berkeley Heights YMCAs are now offering LIVESTRONG, at the YMCA a free twelve-week, small group exercise and recovery program designed for adult cancer survivors. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA fulfills the important need of supporting the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their "new normal". The program is conducted outside of medical facilities to emphasize that LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is about health, not disease.

YMCA fitness instructors work with each participant to fit the program to their individual needs. The instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise and supportive cancer care. Pre-registration and medical clearance is required.

The Summit Area YMCA is one of more than 115 Ys across the nation to have received initial and limited grant funding from the LIVESTRONG Foundation to deliver LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a health and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors achieve their holistic health and wellness goals. Since then our Summit YMCA and Berkeley Heights YMCA programs are funded wholly through the generosity of our donors, sponsors and through grants from foundations. To date, our Summit YMCA and Berkeley Heights YMCAs have partnered to heal and help more than 100 cancer survivors and their families. Nationwide, this number is 10,000.

The LIVESTRONG Foundation is greater than one individual and his actions.  At the Summit Area YMCA, we are committed to supporting the millions of cancer survivors who have benefited from the free, small group sessions which help those struggling emotionally, mentally and physically with the disease.  Participants work with specially trained Y staff to achieve goals such as building muscle mass and strength, increasing flexibility and endurance, and improving confidence and self-esteem.  In addition, the program focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors and their families by providing a supportive “community” where people impacted by cancer can connect during treatment and beyond.
