The YMCA of Greater Houston’s programming is built by its mission of serving Houston as a cause-driven organization for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We strive each and every day to spark real change in our youth by providing high-quality development opportunities from infancy through graduation and beyond.
Child Care & Camps
Through our continuum of care and a variety of programs designed to spark real change, we inspire our youth to thrive. From ensuring younger children are set for success, college and career preparedness, to gaining independence at overnight camp, we are elevating how youth see themselves and what they can accomplish.
Whether it’s through flag football, soccer, baseball and more, our youth sports programs provide a fun, positive experience for kids and their families while encouraging fundamental skill development, teamwork and sportsmanship. Our programs are perfect for those wanting to try out a new sport, or those who want to perfect their skills.
Health & Wellness
We offer programs at the YMCA of Greater Houston that promote health and wellness for all ages, and all levels of ability. We work to support you every step of the way, helping you to become the very best version of yourself. Whether it’s through group or virtual classes, personal training or more, we help you gain confidence, increase strength and have fun while doing it!
As one of the leading providers of swim lessons in the country, the YMCA offers quality swim instruction for the entire family including infant lessons, lifeguard certification training and more. With a wide range of options, our programming improves skills and builds confidence in the water in a safe environment.
The YMCA provides high-quality programs that meet the needs of our community. Virtual programming helps our members who feel more comfortable exercising in their own home, extracurricular and creative kids programming help to fill the gaps a school may be struggling to provide and our home school enrichment programs help parents offer socialization and routine.
We are proud to provide programs that strengthen our community, and provide support to critical issues influencing our area. Through advocacy, adaptive programming, equality education, international services and community support, we are able to connect people to their potential, purpose and each other.
