Nestled in an undeveloped wooded area of Monroe, participants at the Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA Family Outdoor Center have been delighted by its charming yet convenient, easy to get to atmosphere. With 47 acres, possibilities of fun, relaxation and exploration are endless.
Whether you are looking to unwind in the sun by one of our three pools, learn to swim, or get competitive on one of our 2 tennis courts, basketball courts or gaga pits, there is something for everyone.
From Memorial Day to Labor Day embark out on our lake in paddle boats or improve your golfing skills on our mini golf course. Be on the lookout for opportunities that allow you to participate in fun activities for kids of all ages through arts and crafts, tie dye, sports activities, water games and the ever popular obstacle course. Adults are not left out while we organize family fun activities such as the 4th of July Great American Bash, S’more Nights, and a Summer Luau.

Need some time to spend with your exceptional child aged 4 – 13 in a fun unstructured environment, after a long week of organized activities? Please join us on Sundays from 10:15 – 11:15am for one hour of open gym. Your child will enjoy jumping on our trampolines, rolling through our block pit, hanging from the bars and practicing their balance on the beam with your supervision. This is a drop in activity.
Ages: 4 and up
Open to all ability levels: beginner, advanced and a family level. Our experienced instructors will guide students through progressive skill development based on age and grade.
Play with your child and meet others!
