The Middlesex YMCA: We're more than a Gym



Youth Activities Facebook AlbumYou’ve heard it before: we’re more than a gym, we’re a cause. What does that mean; especially if many of our classes take part in the gym? It means we offer more than just games...while playing games. The Y is for youth development, social responsibility, and healthy living. These three concepts can be found in all of our programs. Youth Sports are more than dribbling, kicking, or throwing. We teach social skills: how to greet peers and share commonalities, how to work together with a partner, and how to be comfortable sharing achievements and interests. Children learn that healthy living can be fun. It shouldn’t be a chore to work up a sweat in youth classes, and it isn’t at the Y. Our activities are participation based, exciting, and all inclusive! We also introduce community involvement by donating to local food banks and supporting our camp scholarship fund by contributing to the Polar Plunge at YMCA Camp Ingersoll.

That’s right; our first Polar Plunge at YMCA Camp Ingersoll! Every year thousands of children come to Camp Ingersoll to make friends, learn skills, create memories and have fun. We believe this invaluable experience should be accessible to every child, and we are working our hardest to bring more children to camp. If you would like to help change a child’s life please consider joining our Polar Plunge, coming to the event on the 17th, or supporting one of our jumpers! Click here to learn more about our Plunge.

We hope to see you soon!
