Welcome to the

Niles-Buchanan YMCA

The Niles-Buchanan YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

The Niles-Buchanan YMCA would not be the heart and soul of the community without the hundreds of children, teens and families who are a part of our YMCA family. As the 2012 year comes to a close, we want to thank our many members, volunteers and staff for allowing the YMCA to be a significant part of your life. Happy Holidays from all your friends at the Niles-Buchanan YMCA. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The Niles-Buchanan YMCA is open special hours during the holidays.
