SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
The YMCA of Callaway County exists to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.
We do it by teaching kids new skills that build self-confidence, character values and leadership. We do it by helping adults and families lead healthy lifestyles. We do it by connecting older adults to an active support network. We do it by providing outlets to give back to those in need. People engage with the Y on one level, but they soon find a deeper meaning to their activities and a connection to those around them. Ultimately, at its highest form, they feel compelled to volunteer, to give back and help others strengthen the entire community.
Here are just a few of the YMCA programs helping to strengthen the Callaway County area:
Annual Auction & Dinner
All proceeds benefit YMCA program & membership scholarships for families and children in need.
More than ever, support is needed for YMCA families! The 2020 and 2021 events were cancelled due to COVID-19 but the need in our community continued. We have provided over $20,000 in financial assistance in 2020 and almost $25,000 in 2021 to dater with our busiest months still ahead of us. Membership and Program scholarships make YMCA services accessible to over 1,100 individuals, who otherwise may not have been able to participate.
Please consider a donation directly to the Outreach Program so we may continue to help those in need in our community.
Middle school students enrolled in Callaway County Schools get the chance to mingle and dance the night away at the beloved Y Teen Dances.
Next Dance is scheduked for October 22, 2021 7-9:30pm
Healthy Kids Day
GET READY FOR A SUMMER OF FAMILY FUN WITH YMCA!
Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out, and grow but for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year.
In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain weight and fall behind in studies over the summer months. Y's across the country celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids, each Spring.
Healthy Kids Day 2022 is April 30th. Watch for events as the date nears.
