"Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all." 

The YMCA of Washington County is more than just a gym. It’s a movement of thousands of people making positive changes in their lives and their community. The YMCA serves people from various walks of life. Strengthening their spirit, mind, and body and improving their physical well-being in a healthy and friendly environment. The YMCA is Washington County's premier provider of family health and wellness.

The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn how to develop healthy habits that they'll carry with them throughout their lives. These habits are far greater than just the physical well-being of the individual, they also impact their daily living.



We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.


Serving families has always been at the heart of the Y. We want you to live healthy, so let us help you get started today! Intensify your workout, eat smart and find balance in your life through our programs. Connect with friends, new and old and get fit.


We are a powerful ally and advocate for our communities. Our experiences and strong relationships in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation mean that we are able to organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of social issues including child welfare, education and public health.

The Y is you - the generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve.
