At the Somerset Hills YMCA, we believe that the most important values an individual or organization can aspire to are caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our goal is to build a community in which people – all people – feel encouraged to develop to their fullest potential and we accomplish this through programs that help people grow in spirit, mind and body.
Our YMCA offers more than 200 programs annually, including swimming, wellness, fitness, nutrition, programs for those with special needs, water exercise, day care, school aged child care, active older adults programs, youth and adult sports, gymnastics, dance, adventure-based activities for teens and corporations, specialized family activities and a variety of community service programs including Career Forum, Special Olympics and Saturdays in Motion – more programs and services than any other community service organization in the area.
At the heart of the Somerset Hills YMCA, beyond the variety of classes and programs, a feeling stirs that cannot be found anywhere else – it’s the spirit of the Y, and it is irreplaceable. That spirit comes from serving the community, volunteerism, family activities and people coming together.
The Somerset Hills YMCA depends on the generosity of its supporters to provide quality programs for the children, families and adults we serve. We have been providing vital programs and services to the residents of Somerset Hills since the 1950’s. The Somerset Hills YMCA serves nearly 20,000 individuals through a wide variety of programs and initiatives in response to the changing needs of our growing community.
It is our goal to ensure that no one is ever turned away from a Y program because they cannot afford to participate. We accomplish this through our Strong Kids Campaign, our Golf Classic and other fund raising initiatives.
