Founded in 1858, our YMCA is one of the largest nonprofits in Frederick County. Each year, we serve over 12,000 members and over 30,000 program participants. We also partner with several community organizations to help strengthen and enrich the development of individuals and families in Frederick County.

Integral to everything that we do are our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our Y serves people of all backgrounds, ages, capabilities and income levels, providing financial assistance to those in need.

Encouraging, supporting and improving healthy living habits, among our members and throughout the community, are central to our purpose. Our work also focuses on youth development through a wide variety of programs such as child care, day camps, swim lessons, and organized youth sports.
