2016 Accomplishments:
  1. The Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA provided financial assistance totaling $2.9 million to 102,702 children, adults, seniors and families in 2016.  This assistance supported programs and services throughout the Peninsula's service area Isle of Wight County up to Westmoreland County.
  2. The YMCA strengthened our programs in a challenging economic environment offering more signature programs for teens, older adults, and families than in prior years.  We taught over 8,000 kids to swim, offered exercise classes for people with disabilities, and led over 400,000 participants in adult Health, Well-being and Fitness classes.
  3. Over 1,100 children participated in our Bright Beginnings program.  Through donations and volunteer support, each child received a backpack full of school supplies, clothing and a great time with caring adult mentors.  This program plants seeds of confidence to help the children begin their school year on a positive note ready to learn.
Goals 2017:
  1. Supporting Families and Youth - By developing creative programs, services and partnerships in a family-friendly environment, the Y will provide families with more opportunities to spend quality time together.
  2. Improving Health and Well-being - The Y will improve the health and well-being of all through continuous supportive relationships and environments including developing programs to reduce childhood obesity and actively engaging the increasing baby-boomer population.
  3. Serving Others - We will inspire people to volunteer by providing meaningful opportunities to serve others.
  4. The Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA will continue to ensure that membership, programs and services are open to all regardless of their ability to pay full fees. 
In 2018, the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA has a fundraising Goal of $1,800,000 to support programs and financial assistance.
YMCA Bright Beginnings has a goal to provide a back-to-school shopping trip for 1,000 disadvantaged children. A $150 donation makes this possible for one child.
Hundreds of city children learn how to swim through a free program called Second Grade Learn to Swim. Endowment contributions make this program possible.
The Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA has provided programs and services to the community since 1896.  The YMCA's Mission:  To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all, is fullfilled by meeting the needs of the community.
There are eleven full facility branches, four program branches and one resident camp.  The service area reaches from Isle of Wight County up to Westmoreland County.  Over 7,900 families received financial assistance for membership and programs. 
The Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA is committed to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.  Everyday, we work side by side with our neighbors in our community to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.
Board Chair Statement
Our building are filled with thousands of adults, families, and children, each with their unique story.  These stories are true testaments to the important role our YMCA plays in the daily life of so many.  We hear stories about building friendships, chasing dreams, inspiring hope, achieving goals, and building values.  Th common thread in all of them is our Y.
 The Y's impact is not limited to our buildings.  We reach beyond our walls and meet our community members where they live.  Our Y's presence can be found in schools, churches, community centers, parks. libraries, an in partnership with local hospitals.  We believe in community affiliation and work tirelessly to collaborate with other non-profits.
We strengthen our communities with initiatives designed to serve the ever-changing needs of individuals and families.  Our summer learning-loss prevention program gives hundreds of children the tools they need to stay on track academically through the summer months.
LIVESTRONG   at the YMCA offers a caring, supportive exercise program filled with hope and love for cancer survivors.  Participants take the friendships and encouragement they experience in the 12-week program and share the power of the program with others.  They gain the strength to  reclaim their health and improve their daily lives.
Our Y has generated a cycle of generosity and appreciation that affects both those who give and those who receive.  Our impact extends far beyond our walls and as a result becomes part of who we are.  Each board member, staff member, volunteer, donor, and partner is an extension of our mission in all that we do every day.

While at Camp Kekoka campers enjoy living in rustic cabins with 9 other campers grouped by age. During the daylight hours campers enjoy a well-rounded camp experience which includes traditional activities like swimming, arts and crafts, and archery as well as some unique activities like crabbing, fishing, tubing, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing.
Children today face a barrage of information which can be difficult to understand and deal with. YMCA Camp Kekoka helps to prepare young people for their future by engaging them in developing life skills. They learn to become leaders for the causes they believe in, to live sustainably, to care for our shared environment, and to live cooperatively in a culturally diverse community.

Take It From A Parent

Our daughter Elizabeth has always had an adventurous spirit so after attending an informational meeting about YMCA Camp Kekoka, we decided this was the camp for her and allowed her to go. We are so glad we sent her; she had the most sensational camp experience!
Elizabeth could not wait to go back and returned to Camp Kekoka again last summer. She loves the tubing, kayaking, fishing, crafts, sailing, gardening, and hanging out with friends. She has developed great friendships and keeps in contact with her new friends from camp.
The camp staff have helped instill positive values, increased her self-confidence, and strengthened her sense of responsibility and independence! - Robyn and Thomas

Each branch of the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA supports its community with specific outreach activities. For example, the Newport News Family YMCA started a tutoring program. 30 students and 20 volunteers participated in Encourage, Excel, Educate serving as tutors in math, reading, english, social studies, chemistry and more. The Mathews Family YMCA teen leaders have decided to place teen suicide prevention at the top of their priority list and have started groups to help teens in trouble. Some programs are association-wide.


YMCA Bright Beginnings was born with a vision of providing disadvantaged children with clothes and supplies to begin the school year prepared and confident. On each trip, an adult volunteer is paired with a child to shop for clothes at a local retail store. Clothes purchased include an outfit, shoes, underwear, socks and a sweater or jacket. Each child also receives a backpack filled with grade appropriate school supplies. Since the program’s inception we have served 5,500 children.
