The Cadillac Area YMCA has been building a healthy, vital and caring history in our community for over 17 years through enrichment and development of programs for all ages. Since the start of our programming in the fall of 2002, the Y has been changing and adapting to the community’s needs in an effort to build a better community. From the meager beginnings our Y has expanded programming to more than 50 offerings year round, as well as group exercise classes and drop in sports. This program diversity continues to meet needs in our community by both developing new opportunities and re-imagining existing ones. Different areas of programming include health and fitness, aquatics, gymnastics, lacrosse, summer camps, healthy eating, early childhood education, the arts, and an exploding teen center. Collaborating with other community organizations like Munson Healthcare Cadillac, Local Public and Private Schools, CWTA, Cornerstone and Harborview Apartments has allowed us to expand our offerings to Wexford, Missaukee, and Osceola counties letting us care for our entire service area.
Our Y’s focus and vision has not changed, we are still focusing on the goals, objectives, and programs of the YMCA to positively impact community priorities as identified in the Cadillac Area Needs Assessment; especially in areas of Children & Family and Healthy Lifestyles. Our goals also match needs of youth identified in the 2016 Youth Advisory Committee’s study of teen needs.
Cadillac Area YMCA thanks you for the continued support of the mission of being a place for all.
