The Summit Area YMCA is one of the area’s leading charitable organizations. Our cause is to strengthen the community by nurturing the potential of every child, promoting healthy living for all, and fostering a sense of social responsibility.

Founded in 1886, the Summit Area YMCA has a history steeped in working side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income and background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Our holistic approach to wellness focuses on building a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Our four branches are vital, vibrant, and valued centers in the community, which provide meaningful experiences for individuals and families.

All of our programs and services are infused with the Y core values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility, which build character and enhance self-esteem. Such programs include youth sports leagues, parent-child programs, the free 7th Grade Membership, LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, the Achievers Program, summer camp, child care, and assistance to military families, just to name a few.

Welcome and we look forward to seeing you at the Summit Area YMCA!
