The fanwood-scotch plains ymca is dedicated to improving the quality of life of the individuals, families and communities we serve, through programs and services that build wholeness of spirit, mind and body. The ymca is a not-for-profit organization founded on christian principles, serving people of all ages, races, faiths, cultures and socio-economic conditions.


Preschool and child care - our child care programs offer high quality care activities for preschool and school age children from all segments of our community. We offer a variety of state licensed childcare programs, both full and part-time, which provide a safe and nurturing environment where youth can develop self-esteem, good values and an appreciation of charitable service. Woven into the fabric of the ymca mission is a commitment to strengthening families. We provide scholarships to those who cannot afford to pay. For the fiscal year ended august 2013 we served several thousand people.

health enhancement - the ymca views health holistically. A healthy person has unity of body, mind and spirit. The ymca has identified growing obesity rates as a critical social issue that must be addressed and our health enhancement programs are designed to help people develop new skills and grow in spirit, mind and body by setting realistic goals for self improvement and disease prevention through an active lifestyle, proper nutrition, stress management and health education. Ymca programs promote interaction, teamwork and development of moral and ethical behavior, social skills and self-esteem. For the year ended august 2013 we served thousands of members regardless of their ability to pay. Livestrong at the ymca is a twelve-week, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors. This program supports cancer survivors during the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their "new normal".

aquatics - in addition to teaching swimming and water safety skills, ymca aquatics improve health through increased physical activity and the encouragement of lifelong regular exercise. Ymca aquatics includes progressive swim lessons and water safety awareness for youth, lifesaving skills for teens and adults, recreation therapy for the disabled and aquatic fitness for adults and seniors who may otherwise be unable to exercise in more traditional means. Ymca aquatic programs encourage teamwork and leadership; improve health, and foster feelings of well-being and self-confidence.

camps and youth sports - our summer and day camps offer adventure and learning activities that provide challenge, education and promote spiritual awareness, mental development, physical well-being, social growth and self respect. Our camps provide a reverance for nature and respect for the inter-relatedness of all living things on earth. Our camps are open to all, regardless of income or special needs, so that children can appreciate diversity, become community leaders and develop lifelong values. For the fiscal year 2013 we served hundreds of children.
