Our Mission

The YMCA of the Blue Water Area puts Christian principles into practice through programs that build spirit, mind, and body for all.

Our Values

Our core values unite us with a common cause. They are the shared beliefs and essential principles that guide our behavior, interactions with each other and decision-making.

The four values of the Y:
Caring - Show a sincere concern for others
Honesty - Be truthful in what you say and do
Respect - Follow the golden rule
Responsibility - Be accountable for your promises and actions

Our Promise

The YMCA is a powerful association of men, women, and children of all ages and from all walks of life joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundations of community.

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

Though the world may be unpredictable, one thing remains certain - the Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities.
