Youth Programs

The Lancaster Family YMCA nurtures the potential of all youth by supporting their unique development journey from infant to adulthood. At the Y, we offer a variety of programs that promote education and learning, help children build character and develop confidence, learn to work as a team and create the positive lifestyle habits they need to succeed in life. Our coaches, teachers, camp counselors and volunteers weave the Y’s Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibly into all that we do.

Financial Scholarship for Y programs is available for those who qualify.

The Lancaster Family YMCA is committed to tackling our communities most pressing needs through our Key Mission Priorities. Learn how our focus on Closing the Achievement Gap and Safety Around Water is making a difference for the youth in Lancaster County.
