Who should become a member at the YMCA?

The YMCA is happy to offer a variety of fitness, childcare, and educational programs for our youth members.

Kids interested in sports and aquatics.

Youth sports and swim lessons are available year round so kids in the Lafayette, Indiana community can stay active and have fun. From basketball to wrestling, kids are invited to enjoy the fun of playing a sport and being part of a team.

Families looking for safe, fun childcare and summer camps.

Our state-licensed childcare is a great option for any family looking for excellent care and an educational environment for their kids. In addition, we offer before- and after-school programs to help your day go smoothly, as well as summer camp to keep kids busy and active.

Those in need of health resources and programs.

Through our partnership with IU Health, we offer educational and fitness programs for community members. Opportunities like our diabetes management program and 4th Grade Initiative are designed to make health and wellness a priority in our community.

Kids (and parents) looking to make new friends.

Through the interactions of staff, members, and other program participants, the YMCA is a great place to meet new friends from all over the city, county, and world! The Y is always packed with things you can do as a family or with a group. So, what are you waiting for?
