• 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.

School Age Before Care



Due to low enrollment in 2020 and 2021, the Before Care Program at the Summit YMCA will be taking a waitlist for the 2022-2023 school year. If enrollment allows, we will reopen the program. We will make this decision by July 1, 2022.

The before school care program offers parents the flexibility to drop off Kindergarten and 5th Grade students as early as 7:00 AM at the Summit YMCA. Transportation is provided to the following local schools prior to the opening school bell. The bus leaves promptly at 8:00 AM to ensure timely arrival of all students. 

>> Brayton School - Summit
>> Franklin School - Summit
>> Jefferson School - Summit
>> Lincoln Hubbard School - Summit
>> Washington School - Summit
>> Wilson School - Summit
