The Hamilton Area YMCA is in danger of closing without critical community support! A pillar in the community for nearly 70 years, these are often the things you think of when you think of a YMCA:
• Swim Lessons (Aquatics)
• Youth Sports Leagues
• Group Exercise Classes
• Wellness Center
In recent years, however, the Hamilton Area YMCA has expanded to ensure that we reach every member of the community. This led to the creation and expansion of programs that address our friends and neighbors with specific health or developmental needs:
Chronic Disease Programs - The Y tackle these issues head on with a suite of Chronic Disease Programs such as Delay the Disease Parkinson’s Prevention, THRIVE for cancer survivors and our OneStep Multiple Sclerosis Program which has been replicated by Ys throughout New Jersey.
Kuser Recess Program (Title I School) - The Kuser Recess Program is an initiative currently in its fifth year, designed to address cultural challenges at Kuser Elementary School. Built around the concepts of the Healthy U initiative, the Hamilton Area YMCA’s Healthy U team teaches children how to be happier and healthier, both physically and mentally.
A Transformative Summer Camp Experience - Summer camp is a time for fun and relaxation, but it is also a time for self-esteem and skill building. Each summer nearly 600 summer campers embark on a journey of self-discovery while making friendships that will last a lifetime.
Opportunities for SKOR/SOAR Participants - The Y has served the special needs community for over twenty years, and has expanded to include adults via SOAR as well as additional aquatics activities. We provide a variety of social, instructional, and sports leagues for over 500 participants in our Diverse Abilities (SKOR/SOAR) programs.
The Hamilton Area YMCA is this...and so much more! Don't leave a void in our community. Make a donation today!
