Across the nation the YMCA has been known for quality swim and childcare programs. In large cities and small towns across America donors and volunteers, like you, make it all possible. The Lake Wales Family YMCA is proud to be part of the heritage that builds communities.
The Lake Wales YMCA is proud to provide programs, like SPLASH Water Safety, to our entire community for free. Where else in the community can 125 children representing every sector of the city bring 125 plus adults together to share in their joy and smiles? Your YMCA provides afterschool care to an average of 70 kids a week and full-time care to another 70 plus children. Many of those children join our travel summer camp program, that is 120 children strong. Our senior members fill the building every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday participating in our “geared toward senior fitness classes” led by highly motivated senior instructors. For three hours your YMCA becomes a place where family, friends, and health are the topic of conversation. During this time lunch plans and schedules are check to make sure everyone knows who will be at the next class (so no one worries).
Your YMCA builds memories and communities like no other organization can. The occasional cry from the infant room reminds us that our work as staff and volunteers has just begun. The next generation is waiting to build memories, be potty trained, learn to read, learn sportsmanship, take a first camp adventure, and learn that through caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility we can change our community.
