Each year the Muskegon Family YMCA gives thousands of kids access to programs that build healthy minds, spirits and bodies. We are able to provide scholarships to those in need through the generous support of our donors. Click here to hear personal stories from people in our community whose lives were changed by the hand up they received.
Children age 6-16 are invited to join us once again this summer for our City Parks Program taking place at parks and schools throughout Muskegon from June 16th through August 14th. During this nine week program we will be offering fun activities including sports, games, crafts, field trips and special events. Click here for more information or to register.

The Muskegon YMCA is committed to your fitness! And beginning November 1st, we have a new tool to help you commit to a healthy lifestyle. We’ll work with you to create an online profile based on your current fitness level and personal goals, then provide you with access to one of the most powerful fitness tools available – ActivTrax.
The ActivTrax portal, available from the kiosk in our wellness center as well as from any internet connected computer or mobile device, will give you a new workout tailored to your needs every time you log in. This will keep you on track and help you avoid boredom and plateaus. Log in anytime to see your progress and even track your nutrition. And from time-to-time, you’ll receive fun challenges and special bonuses just for exercising. Click here to view screenshots and set up your Commit To Be Fit appointment.

Overnight Camp: A week of overnight camp at Pendalouan is full of tradition and will be remembered forever by your child. New friendships, canoe rides to Turtle Bay, stargazing above a campfire; your camper will make life-long friends while developing character and independence during a fun filled week! We also have Specialty Camps available for campers who want to spend more time in a specific program area. To learn more about what makes Pendalouan's overnight experience unique, click here.
Day Camp: Kids spend their days engaged in activities such as swimming, canoeing, rowboats, the climbing wall, archery, songs, crafts, hands-on science, playing in the rain (if the weather cooperates) and many other outdoor activities. Hiking to Turtle Bay or visiting our horses at the barn round out a full week that guarantees good memories and tired but happy kids at the end of each day. Sign up for a mix of traditional camp activities and environmental learning, led by professional and well-trained staff.
Busing Available: Travel to and from Muskegon Family YMCA or the White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is available for $30 per week. In addition, extended day (early drop-off or later pick-up) options can be arranged.
