The Y brings families closer, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. The Y is for Social Responsibility, giving back and providing support to our neighbors.

Resident Camp

There is something special and unique about spending part of your summer in the Rocky Mountains kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, skateboarding, filmmaking, creating art and roasting marshmallows by the campfire. It’s not only about activities at c it’s also about making amazing friends, supportive counselors, playing all-camp games, being part of a community and performing skits. Don’t miss your chance to live and play outdoors in the Rocky Mountains this summer at YMCA Camp Santa Maria. This program is for youth ages 6 to 16.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Kids have a multitude of interests, and our wide variety of camp choices are designed to meet their needs as well as your family's needs. We have full time and part time camp options. Also, all of our camps are licensed, which means we go through extra efforts to maintain a high level of programming quality and safety. Our Y has been providing summer camps for more than 35 years in Boulder Valley. Join us for a fun-filled summer where 'character counts' and recognition for demonstrating caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are part of our daily program.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

From yoga to cycling, the YMCA of Northern Colorado's health and fitness programs help people at any stage of life or level of fitness build positive health habits. YMCA wellness programs offer youth and adults opportunities for community, well being, increased self-confidence and strength.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our young athletes learn to play the Y way. That means we create community through YMCA youth sports and ice programs, giving everyone the opportunity for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

At YMCA Inspire Preschool, we know that children learn best through meaningful, hands-on experiences. Our talented teachers deliver daily lessons that allow for exploration and individualized learning opportunities for every child. By supporting your child's academic, social and emotional well-being, they will be set up for a lifetime of learning success. Located inside the Ed & Ruth Lehman YMCA in Longmont, we are uniquely equipped to provide our students with an amazing assortment of indoor and outdoor play opportunities. Along with our playground and bike park, we swim in the indoor pool, play in the gym and learn about fruits and veggies at our on-site farm.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers
Economically disadvantaged people

Our before and after school care programs provide a safe, structured environment where children feel a sense of belonging. Our kids are actively engaged with one another and immersed in activities based around the Y's core values - caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Whether it's time for homework help, creative arts activities, physical play or just relaxing, the Y believes in safe, supportive programs that foster a community within the school.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are: 1) never turn a child away from participating in a YMCA program because of inability to pay, 2) to provide youth development and activities that give our children the opportunity to become confident kids today and healthier, happier, grown-ups tomorrow, 3) to help children understand and value their health by giving them resources and guidance to maintain physical activity, health, and wellness, and 4) to build a stronger, more inclusive community, provide support for families, and promote positive change overall.

As an organization that is committed to strengthening community, it is imperative that we foster partnerships and collaborations with other community groups. Our list of community partners includes the Boulder Valley School District, the City of Boulder Family Resource Schools, the Boulder County Foster Family program, Boulder County Head Start, Boulder Rotary, the University of Colorado Athletic Department, and Foothills United Way. By partnering with these and other nonprofit groups, the Y is able to provide quality programs for our members and for the larger community by sharing our resources. This strategy of collaboration and cooperation—of bringing the best together to deliver a quality program—has served us well as we work to support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

The YMCA of Northern Colorado serves over 50,000 children, youth and adults each year. With two facilities, a residential camp and access to 63 program sites throughout the community, we have the capability to make a significant positive impact on the health and well-being of our community. The 35 members of our board of directors represent a diverse group of stakeholders, all with the common vision of making a positive impact on the children and families of our community.

We are currently working to reduce the incidence of childhood drowning in our community. Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death among Colorado children ages 14 and under. With the addition of a seasonal cover on our outdoor aquatics facility and the cooperation of the Boulder Valley School District, we will soon be able to offer water safety classes to every BVSD student in the second grade.

We also are working to reduce the number of children who are either overweight or clinically obese through an intervention program that targets both the child and the family. We've had increasing numbers of families participating in the MEND program, and many have left with a new understanding of health and wellness.
