HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ - In accordance with the Governor’s Executive Orders, the Hunterdon County YMCA is pleased to offer a number of programs to promote the health and well-being of the community. The safety of members, program participants, and staff is the number one priority. The Y is following guidelines from health experts and local officials to ensure that programs meet the highest standards for hygiene and safety, and the Y has modified our policies and programs to facilitate safe physical/social distancing practices.

The Hunterdon County YMCA is excited to announce integrated indoor and outdoor aquatics programming at the Y’s two pools; the Indoor Pool at the Deer Path Branch, Flemington and the Outdoor Pool at Camp Carr, Annandale. Both pools are open for member lap swimming. Online reservations are required.  Spaces are open in 45-minute increments to allow 15 minutes for cleaning and sanitizing in between use.

In addition, the Camp Carr Outdoor pool hosts training for the HCY’s Stingrays Swim Team. With the health and safety of all as a top priority, the Y is reintroducing aquatics programming in phases. Upcoming phases will include Family Swim, Water Exercise, and Swim Lessons.
