YMCA of Dayton Ohio, Summer Day Camps, Child Care, Fitness and Excercise Programs - My Y Story

Your input is important to us. Please provide your valuable feedback. Here are some testimonials from our clients:


The Y always has been a place we can go to let go of the day’s stresses or even to get our days started out right. I know it’s been a positive place for my family and I am grateful. The Y has impacted our lives in so many ways. Swim lessons have allowed my children to build their confidence and social levels, not to mention my confidence in knowing they are learning life-building skills.

At one time things were really difficult for us and our well pump at home broke. Knowing we were able to come to the YMCA to take a shower with clean water until the pump was fixed was a huge comfort.

Our family benefits from the scholarship provided by the Annual Campaign, we take part in swim lessons, youth basketball, fitness classes and more. We are grateful for the assistance. Without the help, our family would not be able to continue our membership.

The YMCA has not only given us the opportunity to improve our health, but has allowed us to gain many friendships over the years. We are still good friends with a family we met back in 2008 with the Gym & Swim program.

I enjoy walking the track and working out at my own pace in the fitness room. My husband and I watch our daughter at swim lessons, she truly enjoys those and is now at the Fish level. Mark enjoys the fitness room and we all enjoy the game room. Cheyenne has even joined the Kid Fit classes and is now able to join us in the fitness area.

The YMCA gives us alone or family time, depending on our needs, as well as the chance to learn from others. There are so many things to learn and plenty of helpful staff around if you have questions. It gives us a place to unwind and focus on our health. We can exercise and workout without fear of embarrassment—everyone is different and works out in their own way and ability. We are comfortable at the Y and feel better when we make time to go.

Our family benefits from the scholarship provided by the Annual Campaign, especially our daughter and her swim lessons. She sees two specialists at Children’s Hospital for various health reasons. They want her to swim for the fitness benefit and the scholarship helps us to afford the lessons for her. We are grateful for the assistance. Without the help, our family could not continue our membership.

Our family benefits greatly from the YMCA. From my lifestyle transformation and knowledge learned from the Y trainers to my son’s new friends he has made through swim lessons, tae-kwon-do, and youth baseball, our family is excited to go to the Y.

We are SO THANKFUL for the Annual Campaign scholarship. With my husband finishing school and trying to secure a full-time position, we needed the extra help to maintain our YMCA membership. Without the help and our membership, I would not have been as successful in my journey to a healthier lifestyle. Jack would not have been able to take swim lessons or youth sports. Also, my youngest son enjoys the nursery when I NEED a break for a ‘me-time’ workout.

We have made many new friends and relationships with great people over the years. We come to the Y just about every day and our kids enjoy it as well.

The Y is a great family-oriented place that focuses on strong family values. The Y provides so much to the local community and the overall well-being of its members. Donating and volunteering at the Y is a great way to encourage values and strong ties with your neighbors and other Y members.

I just really want to say that I LOVE the YMCA and thank you for all that your organization does for families! Four years ago I gave birth to my fifth child, Jacob. While some may not see that as a miracle, I had been told that I could not have any more children after my fourth child was born, 13 years earlier. Currently, my children’s ages are from 25 years old down to age four.

We joined the YMCA in 1993 and through various moves, maintained our membership. In 2001, we returned to the Dayton area and of course, re-joined the YMCA. We not only utilized the youth sports, we needed the after-school care and summer day camps. As my four older kids grew, they continued in team sports and finally became old enough to use the wellness center (this was a huge milestone for them).

After Jacob was born, I had to return to work and the ONLY place that came to mind was the YMCA! We felt so comfortable with the environment and the qualified staff and were impressed with the entire program. We applied for a scholarship. Without the help of the tuition assistance, I would not have been able to return to work. THANK YOU!

We are hardworking parents, just like the majority of the families out there today. We initially needed child care for our son, Mekhi, then added to our family last year with the birth of our daughter, Morgan. The Y was the perfect answer for us - a stable, safe and loving environment to nurture our children.

The teachers provide an education, along with a caring environment. They are essentially the secondary caregivers for our kids, while we work during the day to provide for our family.

Financially, the scholarship allows us to continue to work and care for our kids, we couldn’t afford the child care otherwise. We do our best to attend all the Y events and support the YMCA, they’ve given us peace of mind. We know our kids are being cared for and learning skills that will help them once they are ready for school.
