Dedicate Time to Yourself and Join the Y for Outdoor Fitness & More

Let's face it, this year has been a difficult one for many, with the global COVID-19 pandemic closing businesses and schools, moving the greater part of society indoors to the safety of their homes. Whether you are juggling working from home and taking care of the kids, or if you are home from school dealing with stressed parents and annoying siblings, or if you are newly unemployed and feeling down in the dumps, it can be so easy to neglect the health and well-being of the most important person in your life—yourself!

Now, you can join the Summit Area YMCA with a $0 Join Fee, typically valued at $95! At the Y, you can find a sense of normalcy, a supportive, inclusive and caring community, and most importantly, a moment of time to focus on yourself. Currently, we offer a variety of outdoor group exercise classes, the opportunity to reserve private access to our fitness centerpersonal training for both indoors and outdoors, an outdoor fitness center, youth soccer, teen programs, summer camp, child care, outdoor pool, private swim lessons, lap swim and more. All that you can gain access to by joining the Y! Plus when we do reopen completely, you'll be pleased to find we have so much more in store. The world is not quite back to normal yet, but with the Y and our community working together, we can still safely come together and take care of our health and wellness—physically, socially and mentally. Together, we are stronger.


Because your safety is our top priority, the Summit Area YMCA is working closely with all CDC and Department of Health to establish guidelines in disease prevention, safety and cleanliness for all staff and members.
