White Rock YMCA Spring Program Guide January 1 - May 1, 2018


The White Rock YMCA began offering Day Camp, educational classes, and youth programming back in 1955 and continues to be a major part of the White Rock community. Today, our programs consist of activities for all ages; from infants to seniors. The White Rock Y has been impacting lives for years and I know we will continue to do so. Through the YMCA Annual Campaign, we make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. This year, we have set a goal of raising $234,000 which we will use to make sure that no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. This important promise is one of the many things that separates the Y from other gym and swim facilities. If you are considering joining the White Rock Y, stop by our Welcome Center and ask for a free guest pass for yourself or a friend. Amenities include over 130 group exercise classes per week, complimentary child watch, numerous weight and cardio machines, and our swimming pool. When you decide to join, we will have you meet with one of our wellness coaches to ensure you are on the right track to achieve your personal goals. I hope you take a few minutes to look through our program guide and see all that the White Rock YMCA has to offer. Welcome to the Y family! Eric Schenkelberg Vice President of Operations


Mission Statement The mission of the YMCA is to put Christian values into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

Financial Assistance At the Y, no one is turned away due to their inability to pay. In keeping with our mission, the White Rock Y offers financial assistance to those who qualify, based on a sliding scale. Anyone can apply to receive financial support through the Y For All program. Eligibility is determined on an individual basis. For more information, contact: Marla Sone - Membership Coordinator

Board of Management Our Board of Management is a group of YMCA members whose love of the White Rock/Lakewood community has led them to volunteer their time, talents, and treasures to ensure the fulfillment of the YMCA mission.
