Welcome to the Valley Shore YMCA.  As a lifelong YMCA member, I can not think of a more exciting, cause-driven organization to belong to, raise a family, work, volunteer, or donate.  I am honored to the be Executive Director at the Valley Shore YMCA and proud of the work we do to strengthen community. We are more than a gym, we are a cause! Since 1917, we have served families on the Shoreline in countless ways, including swim lessons, camp, teen nights, adult fitness, childcare, cancer survivor programs, a community garden and so much more. At the YMCA, we are for:

Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen. At our YMCA, we provide a safe, fun environment for children during after school programs to give working parents piece of mind; help children discover friendships and build confidence at summer camp, and ensure that every child can safely enjoy water activities for life; and much, much more.

Healthy Living: Improving the Shoreline’s health and well-being. The Valley Shore YMCA is committed to helping adults, children, and families of all ages and abilities lead healthy, active lifestyles. We help cancer survivors feel alive again, ensure that seniors are active older adults, help individuals lose weight and gain confidence, provide the best darn tri club on the planet and more.

Social Responsibility. Giving back and providing support to our neighbors. We offer volunteer opportunities for members to give back to their community through both the YMCA and other non-profits. We grow fresh, organic produce in our community garden and give it all away. Our financial aid program ensures that all YMCA programs and services are available to anyone, regardless of ability to pay.

If you are considering joining, donating, or volunteering at our YMCA, I invite you to give me a call, as I would be honored to speak with you.

Lastly, here are the videos we produce regularly to keep you up to date on YMCA activities and to highlight impactful YMCA programs:
