The Summit YMCA is hosting the annual Deep Freeze Swim Meet this Saturday & Sunday, February 4 & 5. As a result the pools & gymnasium will be closed. Parking around the Y will be available but limited. Members may/ visit the Berkeley Heights YMCA or other local YMCAs as part of their nationwide membership benefit.
Through our commitment to supporting and encouraging youth to make good decisions and form wellness habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle, the Summit Area YMCA is proud to offer free memberships to all 8th grade students in our service area, as a continuum of the 7th Grade Initiative Program. Available at the Summit YMCA, this program provides additional opportunities for students of all backgrounds to be inspired to learn new things, encourages them to get involved in community projects, helps prepare them for college, promotes healthy habits and socialization with peers in a safe, supervised and inspiring environment.
In order to participate in the program, each student will be required to attend monthly meetings and contribute to (and create) community service projects and outreach opportunities. Participants will learn and develop leadership skills, as well as the values of professionalism and volunteerism, while socializing with like-minded peers.
