The YMCA at New Holland

The Lancaster Family YMCA family has grown.

The New Holland Rec Center (NHRC) located at 123 N. Shirk Road, in New Holland, PA has become the YMCA at New Holland.  Members of the Lancaster Family YMCA automatically have member privileges at this new location.

This opportunity to expand comes as the NHRC faces economic challenges and the NHRC Board recognized its difficulty in continuing to fulfill its mission. It is because of our positive community impact and our like-minded mission that the NHRC Board invited the Lancaster Family YMCA to offer programs and services to the New Holland community. As part of the agreement, the Lancaster Family YMCA will be leasing the existing New Holland Rec Center building.

Over the next few months we’ll be adding more content about the YMCA at New Holland to our website. To learn more about the New Holland location now, you can visit the existing New Holland Rec website.
