WE ARE A CAUSE
Welcome to the YMCA of Coastal Carolina, a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening the community. We focus on developing the potential of kids, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors. Your participation will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself, but in your community, too.
When you join the Y, you're committing to more than simply becoming healthier. You are supporting the values and programs that strengthen your community.
The Y provides inclusive opportunities for youth to learn and grow. Our summer day camps give children the opportunity to spend time outdoors. And, the Y’s certified instructors teach children invaluable swimming skills every year so they can be safe and confident around water.
HEALTHY LIVING. Our members are challenged to meet their fullest potential. That's why a Y membership includes FREE Health and Wellness Consultations, Water Fitness and Group Exercise Classes, including BODYPUMP®. Plus, access to Personal Training and our YMCA Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program.
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. Through the Y, people from different backgrounds volunteer side by side with neighbors and community partners to improve and contribute to a stronger, more connected society.
STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY SINCE 1855.
You may know the Y as the place to go to get in a heart-pumping workout, but the Y exists as a non-profit here to meet the needs of the community. We're helping kids, adults and families in Coastal Carolina neighborhoods become the best version of themselves through numerous programs and services such as Child Care and much more.
Everyone is welcome here. We believe diversity enriches and enlivens our Y. When you are a member of the Y, you are helping to strengthen your community.
Ensuring A Brighter
Preschool/Early Childhood Education
“The Y means everything to me when it comes to Mason. It means he is happy and continuing to move forward a little bit each day with the help of teachers that care about him.”
The Y provides an environment that encourages curiosity, creativity and expression. Children are individuals, and we believe in developing the whole child emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially, while meeting each child’s own needs and learning styles. Through games, group activities, songs, creative drama, gym time, outdoor play, and story time, children will learn about the world around them. We believe in partnering with parents to encourage whole child development within a safe and nurturing environment.
"The instructors were very sensitive to my personal struggles."

Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program
As a leading nonprofit for strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y believes that all people should be able to live life to its fullest, healthiest potential.

Ambassadors will also provide ongoing support through monthly nutrition education seminars and personalized consultations each month.
