Health & Fitness
At the Y, we believe health and fitness means taking care of the whole you, and we know that even small changes can make a big difference. We're invested in your health and helping you meet your goals, whether that means losing weight, gaining strength, or simply finding ways to increase energy and decrease stress. You're not only supported by our staff, you're part of a community committed to helping you learn new things, explore new activities, and discover your best self at any stage in your life.
Swimming at the Y helps people thrive—in and out of the water. Swim lessons provide kids and teens with the opportunity to set goals and achieve success, learn water safety and enjoy a swimming as a form of exercise. Through swimming lessons, swim teams, lap swimming and more, the YMCA of the Greater Seattle provides a safe environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities.
Kid & Family Activities
The Y is a great place to grow up. We have an enormous variety of activities for kids of all ages and interests, from basketball, to rock climbing, chess club to dance class, and everything in between. The Y is the place where any kid can come to cultivate the skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and lifelong success—and have fun doing it. We pride ourselves on meeting the needs of all different types of families, so no matter what your background, your financial situation, or your schedule, there’s a place for your kids at the Y.
YMCA camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside their normal lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests and new friends. Parents have trusted YMCA camps for generations, because, they are experiences that help foster leadership, self-confidence, and deepen respect for the environments and communities we live in. We offer a huge variety of camp locations, options and formats, so no matter what your background or summer schedule, there’s a place for your kids at a Y camp.
The values and skills learned early in life are vital building blocks for a successful adulthood, and we believe all kids deserve a strong start and a safe place to grow. Parents trust the Y’s child care programs to support and nurture their children from infancy through the teen years and help them become strong, capable and engaged young people.
The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique youth development journey through holistic programming. From cradle to career, the Y provides all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life.
