About the Y
The YMCA is a vital asset to the communities it serves. We work together with communities to provide programs like Before- and After-School Child Care, Preschool, Day Camps, Swimming and Swim Lessons, Family Activities, Sports for adults and children, Art programs, Health and Exercise, specialty programs for teens and older adults, and many more programs that help make that community an even nicer place to live and raise families. All YMCA programs are developed around the core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
Everyone Is Welcome
What sets the YMCA apart is that we make membership, programs, services, and facilities available regardless of a family or individual’s ability to pay the standard membership and program fees. If you want to participate at the YMCA and feel you are not financially able to do so, please apply to our Guardian Program. We do not want you or your family to be excluded from the benefits that the Y has to offer.
The mission of the Y is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
The Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA strives to be a leading family advocate in the community, inclusive and open to all people, responsive to community needs, committed to building character, wellness and fellowship through programs which promote moral and ethical values, and bring all members of our community together for the common good.
