The Summit Area YMCA is happy to announce its partnership with the Township of Springfield to operate the Springfield Community Pool's 2021 summer season!
Opening from Memorial Day to Labor Day, the recently renovated facilities located at 44 Morrison Road, Springfield, NJ 07081 span over 15 acres providing Springfield residents with a spacious main pool, kiddie pool, water slide, diving board, lounge chairs, playground, picnic area, basketball and volleyball courts, large multi-purpose room (available for rentals), locker rooms, showers and more, to enjoy leisure, free swim, lap swim, aquatic exercise, summer day camp, swim lessons, swim team and social events.
“We are extremely grateful to have this unique opportunity to serve the Township of Springfield this summer. These are still challenging times for us all, but we are confident that we can operate the outdoor pool and summer day camp in Springfield ensuring uncompromised safety while delivering high quality fun experiences for the families of our community.” said Paul Kieltyka, President & CEO of the Summit Area YMCA. “We will incorporate our core tenets of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility while welcoming all in the Springfield community.”

The Y will also run the Springfield Pool Day Camp from 6/28 - 8/27. This full day (9:00 AM - 4:00 PM) summer camp is available to children ages 5-10 whom are Springfield residents or have a parent working in Springfield. Campers swim everyday at Springfield Pool Day Camp, in addition to playground time, sports, group games, arts and crafts, STEM activities and theme days. Registration for Springfield Pool Day Camp opens March 29!
As a nonprofit, the Summit Area YMCA is committed to enhancing the lives of individuals and families in our community. We do so by offering financial assistance to those with demonstrated need so that they may enjoy all the Y has to offer, regardless of their ability to pay. This helps us ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Families with low or moderate household income or those who are experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to apply. Applicants must live or work in the Summit Area YMCA service area which includes Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Financial assistance can be used for membership, childcare, summer camp, enrichment, sports programs and more where additional fees apply, such as soccer and swimming lessons.
Stay tuned for details. More information will be available soon regarding operating hours, pool rules, safety policies, and information on recreational activities, swim lessons and swim team!
