Our pools are also Liquid Gyms with Aqua Bikes and Aqua Treadmills submerged in the pool!

Each option provides an incredible workout with less stress on joints. We’ve worked with aqua instructor Katy Coffey to change the perception of aquatic fitness, train and invest in

Swim Lessons = Water Safety

Spring is in the air and outdoor waterfronts are beginning to open up.  Now is a great time to get in the pool to prepare for swimming outside. A good goal is to swim 100 yards (4 lengths of the pool) comfortably to be prepared for outdoor water currents and tides. Not there yet?  Our professional swim instructors are available to get you ready!

Your Support, Our Mission

This is proving to be a year like no other! Already, our camps have an average of 1,200 campers registered for each week this summer which means we are on track to have a record breaking year – both in camper numbers and financial assistance.

The need is real. ALL kids need opportunities to engage with each other, rediscover their sense of adventure, and reach their potential – but we can’t do it alone. The YMCA of the North Shore proudly says “yes” to everyone – thank you for joining us in our mission to welcome everyone and give every kid a summer to remember.
Cleaning Sanitization:  A clean Y is a happy Y.

We are committed to the health and safety of all our staff and members. Thank you for continuing to do your part in helping keep the equipment and YMCA facilities clean. We will continue our stringent cleaning practices and facility sanitization plans. Learn more>>
