The summer months are just around the corner. Summer is meant to be filled with learning enrichment, new experiences, and making new friendships and memories that can last a lifetime. At the Y, we focus on programs that allow children to explore and get involved in activities that help them grow both mentally and physically.

Options available for all ages and many schedules and interests. Click here for more information, session dates and times, or to register.

Looking for a traditional resident camp experience? We have all that and more at the 400-acre Memory Maker YMCA Camp Hanes.


Journey To Freedom

Making Positive Life Changes

Is there anything in your life that you would like to change? Most of us have tried to make changes in our lives and have failed. Change is not impossible. Like most things in life that are worthwhile, change requires practice, training, and a solid foundation.

Journey to Freedom can provide the support you need to change your life for the better. This healing community of 8-10 people also experiencing change can help you work through changes both large and small. Journey to Freedom can help you experience lasting change and a better life.

It combines small group classes with health and well-being services to give you the best of both worlds, focusing on the whole you – spirit, mind and body while you work your specific needs and goals. Past participants have been able to address challenges related to their relationships and family dynamics, careers, weight/food/body image issues, grief/loss, anxiety and so much more.

Sessions are currently underway. Look for new sessions at Fulton Family YMCA, William G. White, Jr. Family YMCA, Statesville Family YMCA, and Stokes Family YMCA coming in September!

$64 with Financial Assistance available

Our Goal

Our goal is not only to raise awareness of this problem, but also to fund childhood obesity programs that we know work. The YMCA’s Healthy, Fit and Strong program (formerly P.A.C.E.S) helps families understand and make healthier lifestyle and eating choices. Healthy, Fit and Strong has reached over 3,000 kids in our community so far. Included in this program is nutritional education for parents of obese children. The YMCA also provides an after-school physical activity curriculum and fitness classes for the entire family.

All of the net funds raised by the Mistletoe Run will go toward fighting childhood obesity. We need your support, now more than ever.

We have learners from over 20 countries, including China, Korea, Burma, Vietnam, Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador…some are just beginners and some have studied English for years and just need help with conversation and pronunciation.

YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

CHANGE TODAY FOR A HEALTHIER FUTURE

An estimated one of every three U.S. adults has prediabetes, yet just 7% of those with prediabetes know they have it.

Are you or someone you know at risk? Take the quiz now to find out.

You can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and gain tools for healthy living. If you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program provides a supportive environment where you can work with others in a small group setting to learn how to adopt healthy habits to reduce your chances of developing the disease.

The program, which is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting, is delivered over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance. You will learn strategies for eating healthier, increasing your physical activity and making other changes that will improve your overall health and well-being. National Institutes of Health research has proven that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by almost 60%.
