Here for our Community

Temporarily, closing our doors and creating distance between people we serve was previously unimaginable for an organization like the YMCA. Thank you for understanding as we navigate this unprecedented challenge.

The health, safety and well-being of our members, volunteers, staff and our broader community have always been our top priority. We’ve been gathering information from the CDC, the State of CT and Governor Lamont, our Health Department and other YMCAs to ensure the health of our entire Y community.

Although Governor Lamont has announced that gyms can open in late June, regrettably, the Valley YMCA, a branch of the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA, will be not be opening for members. Our residents will continue to call the Valley Y home. Our Child Care Center and Summer Day Camp will, thankfully, be in session to help support the summer child care needs in our community.

We anticipate having additional information in the next 4-6 weeks and will continue to email you updates on the Valley YMCA. Please continue to access our Virtual Programming. We hope to talk with you soon!

If you have questions, please contact Josh Royce, District Executive Director, at 203 736 9622 or by email at jroyce@cccymca.org.
