West Suburban YMCA

Our Community's Backyard

The West Suburban YMCA provides a nurturing place for kids, families, and adults of all  ages to stay active and have fun - right on Church Street in the heart of Newton Corner. Members and program participants benefit from all the amenities our Y offers both indoors and out- a modern fitness center, full sized gymnasium, two pools, auditorium,  classroom space, the New Balance Track and Field, a playground, and even a wooded area for traditional summer camp activities like archery and arts and crafts.

Year-round activities enable participants across the lifespan to develop as leaders, focus on health and wellness, and experience a sense of belonging in our welcoming community. From group exercise classes, to youth basketball, to Livestrong at the YMCA for cancer survivors, we employ every inch of our property to provide something for everybody. Nowhere is this more true than at Camp Pikati, our uniquely affordable, high-quality, local summer camp option. Parents have peace-of-mind knowing their children are in a safe, caring atmosphere, while kids are unplugged from technology, engaged in activities designed to foster healthy youth development, and interacting with a diverse group of peers.

Outdoor space has become the heartbeat of the Y in all seasons, as our community has searched for new ways to enjoy the outdoors in all weather. Flag football in snowpants, spin class under the tent, and personal training wearing a winter hat have become symbols of resilience and healthy living under difficult circumstances. As added benefit, these outdoor activities reduce strain on critical indoor space.

Now, it’s time for us to invest in the facility in order to provide the environment that ensures all members in our community can practice healthy habits and build a foundation for a strong future, here in Newton’s backyard.
