The mission of the Y is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
The YMCA of the Virginia Peninsulas strengthens communities. Through our focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, we embrace and nurture the promise that lives in all of us. The Y gives children, families, and individuals the support and resources needed to be healthier, more confident, connected, and secure.
The YMCA is a vital asset to the communities it serves. We work together with communities to provide programs like before- and after-school childcare, 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.
