Two children playing on a slide being supervised by YMCA staff


“The YMCA has been a godsend to us. The staff are awesome! Always friendly and helpful. Have never had a negative experience with programs, summer camp, swimming, or child care. Wonderful people... wonderful organization.”

“I appreciate the value for what I pay for, the unpretentious atmosphere, and most importantly: the community of friends that I have through the Y. We support each other through the messiness of life.”

Middle School Initiative

“Middle School Initiative helped me learn new things, make friends, take a break from school, and have fun. It also helped me solve the problems I was having at home and school. I get to relax and finish my work.”

Personal Training

“Since I began working with a personal trainer, I’ve lost 55 pounds, I’m off of one of my maintenance medications, and arthritis no longer slows me down. My trainer puts together workouts that challenge me to work harder than I think I can, and he’s always in my corner to encourage me. I’ve made more lasting progress working with the YMCA’s trainers and staff than I would have made on my own.”

Camp Shady Brook

“Words cannot even begin to express our thanks to you and the camp counselors. My child had an amazing time at camp this summer. The counselors made such a positive impact on him that he saw them all as friends. I asked my son what the best part of camp was and I think his answer was half an hour long! From the water rafting to the horseback riding, s’mores, the mattress slip and slide and navigator and pioneer week, the list went on and on.”

Youth Sports

“I was given the chance to play football at the Y this past season and I just wanted to share how it helped and encouraged me. It gave me motivation to play again and find my passion with sports. My family is thankful for the scholarship the Y offered me and this opportunity to get me involved in something positive. Thank you for believing in me and making this possible!”

“We have been doing swim team prep for three months. My daughter has been discouraged for the last couple months, but today, the instructor got in the water and showed her what to do - her confidence was up so quick! Thank you!”

Balance Classes

“The course has improved all areas of my life and given me a tool to help in less falls and deeper awareness. The movements learned have aided in being able to recover without falling down from trips, slips, and other unforeseen impacts.”

The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region’s strong commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the seventh consecutive time that the Y has earned this top distinction. Only 8% of Charity Navigator’s rated organizations have received a four-star rating for seven consecutive years!
