Photo Notice:

  • The Y occasionally videotapes/photographs its members and participants in various activities. Some of these photos are used in Y marketing materials, such as ads or brochures. If you do not want your photo to be used by the Y, please step out of the shot or notify the photographer before the picture is taken.

The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. No one will be denied access to YMCA programs or facilities due to an inability to pay.  Funds made available for financial assistance are provided through the generous giving of individuals and businesses to the YMCA's Annual Campaign.  IRS Form 990 Available For Inspection Upon Request.
