State College Branch

The State College YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, family time, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Program Guide:

The Y offers so much more than just a place to workout: our youth programs help children develop into successful young adults; wellness programs support individuals of all ages and abilities on their journey to healthy living; and our social responsibility initiatives improve our community through cooperation and collaboration.

In order to keep you informed with current and up-to-date information on activities at the YMCA, we have decided to no longer print our branch brochures, effective June 1. In place of the brochures, we will be emailing a newsletter each month about upcoming events and activities. We will also post all of the information you need on our website, mobile app, and printed materials available at the Member Services Desk.
