Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. Beyond fitness facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions, and offer a variety of programs that support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength. We offer classes and programs for those dealing with chronic disease, joint and injury rehabilitation, stress and pregnancy, in addition to health assessments and wellness coaching. With a focus on prevention, we give people the resources and support they need, whether their goal is to maintain wellness, reduce the risk of chronic disease or reclaim good health.
Health and wellness can happen in more places than just a gym. Whether you join the swim team, swim laps, taking part in a water fitness class or are just learning to swim, aquatics is an important part of the YMCA. River Valley Regional YMCAs offer numerous aquatics programs to fit any lifestyle or skill level.
At River Valley Regional YMCA Branches we provide consistent, quality care for children ages 6 weeks old and up. All school sites are licensed by the Department of Human Services. Many preschool and school age programs participate in the Keystone STARS Program, a quality initiative in the state of Pennsylvania. Our Preschool Programs follow the Creative Curriculum and our School Age Programs follow the Links to Learning Framework. At the YMCA child care isn’t just what we do it is why we do what we do. Our child care programs are the first step in a life long journey with the YMCA.
