Our Y

Our Y

The Muskegon YMCA has been a constant in our community since 1916 promoting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility through programs and activities. The YMCA and the YWCA of Muskegon merged in 1972 and a few short years later, 1979, the YMCA moved to 900 West Western. In October of 2015, the Muskegon YMCA sold the fitness facility and became what is known in the YMCA Movement as a non-facility YMCA.

Like almost 200 non-facility YMCAs across the country, we address current community health and wellness needs where they are most prevalent – at sites throughout the community. Our Y now serves over 10,000 individuals annually through outreach programs at over 20 sites throughout Muskegon County. YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility are woven into every policy and program.

Our proud camping heritage began when YMCA Camp Pendalouan was established in 1924.  Camp Pendalouan is a year-round outdoor education center, summer camp, and conference facility serving schools, families and organizations. Pendalouan serves over 10,000 kids annually.

Our Mission

To put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
