About the YMCA
Welcome to the Family YMCA of Lancaster and Fairfield County
At the Y, our mission is to put christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy body, mind, and spirit for all.
The YMCA is a non-profit community centered organization that brings people together, nurtures potential, and gives back to the community. At the Y, we pride ourselves in Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. We have the amazing opportunity to enrich the lives of those around us through these three key principles.
Youth Development: Our focus on youth development is to enhance the interests of our children and give them the opportunity to experience our programs, forge friendships, and make memories that will last a lifetime. The Y is a place in the community where kids and teens learn to develop strong values to reach their potential.
Healthy Living: Our mission is “To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy body, mind, and spirit for all.” The Family YMCA of Lancaster and Fairfield County offers dozens of programs that promote physical and mental wellness in a safe, positive, and judgement-free environment.
Social Responsibility: Generosity is at the core of the YMCA. Through the monetary support from donors, we are able to give back and fund our Partners with Youth campaign. This campaign provides financial assistance to the youth in our community for memberships, programs, childcare, and summer camp. Every child has the chance to experience all of the remarkable things we have to offer at the Y.
