ABOUT THE HUNTERDON COUNTY YMCA
Since our beginning in 1903, the Hunterdon County YMCA has been strengthening our community. Together with people like you, we nurture the potential of kids, help people understand and improve their health, and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
Today, the Hunterdon County YMCA is one of the largest not-for-profit community service organizations in Hunterdon County. It is an important part of community life in the many neighborhoods it serves. It works to meet the health and social service needs of the 10,000 men, women and children served each year. Your YMCA works to promote strong children and families, good health, a solid community, and a better world.
Best known for health and fitness, our Y also provides childcare, summer camp, preschool, family programs, swim lessons, activities for seniors, teen programs, volunteer opportunities and much more. The abundance of offerings allows your YMCA to effectively meet a variety of needs and serve a community that is growing more diverse. The Hunterdon County YMCA has two main branches located in Flemington and Annandale, New Jersey. There are 22 satellite locations that include before/after school programs at 17 county schools, a preschool, three summer camp locations and the YMCA North Hunterdon Senior Center.
The Deer Path facility in Flemington is made up of a comprehensive 27,800 square foot health and physical education facility that opened in 1984. The Round Valley branch in Annandale is made up of 16,000 square foot fitness center and childcare center that was first leased by the Y in 1999 and purchased in 2012. Numerous community facilities including schools, church and municipal buildings provide space for childcare and programs for seniors. The decentralization of our programs allows the YMCA to serve neighborhoods throughout the area.
As a nonprofit, the Y is able to strengthen community because of the dedicated youth, families and individuals who share our passion and make the Y part of their lives. They give their time, resources and talents—every day and in hundreds of ways—because they know they can improve the lives of others while enhancing their own through the Y.
Well-being for many of our neighbors is all too frequently limited by income or social isolation. The Y offers opportunities for every child, teen or adult to achieve his or her potential regardless of economic status. With your help, the Y can continue to expand programming and outreach where it is needed most.
