The Summit Area YMCA builds stronger communities with programs and services that help all individuals learn, grow, and thrive in a welcoming, inclusive environment.  At the Y, seniors who participate in our healthy living and social programs increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement while building a strong sense of belonging and a network of friends.  As a result, these active older adults live a healthier and more fulfilling life.

With this in mind, the Summit Area YMCA will offer FREE classes for area seniors on Wednesdays from June 19- August 27.  On these days, local residents age 62 and over are invited to visit the Summit branch at 67 Maple Street in Summit for FREE.
