The Pocono Family YMCA is currently closed due to the Governor's orders. We will be reopening childcare & Summer Care on June 8th. Please sign up in advance to reserve your spots. Space is limited. Our programs and childcare may take look a little different as we return but we will get through this season together. Please check for more updates soon.
We stand in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We are saddened by the injustices that people face over and over again in the US.
Black lives matter because they are human lives. And, in recognition of the tremendous and unfair struggles they face, we must all be a part of the solution to change this unfortunate reality of inequality.
The YMCA's current Main Street building consists of 4 major building projects. The YMCA was created on July 17, 1914 and after a generous donation by Mrs. W. Burnett Easton of "Harriet Hall." After some renovations the Y held its grand opening in 1916. The renovated building consisted of a bowling alley, swimming pool, and a gym. In 1955 the main portion of the building was added - the gym, pool and front 3 floors of the building, including the third floor residence. In 1985 the fitness center and aerobics room were added and the upper part of the 1915 building was converted into racquetball courts. The racquetball courts were replaced in 2005 with a Cardio Suite. In 1993 the adjacent Lim property was purchased and turned into the Learning & Caring Center which now houses some of our child care programs.
In 2014 the Pocono Family YMCA celebrated its 100th Anniversary. The Y is committed to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility throughout Monroe County and our surrounding communities.
