Christian Leadership Conference

Come to YMCA Camp Hanes on November 18 to explore your Christian faith as it relates to how you interact with the world around you through camp activities, workshops and times of worship. Learn from our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Gary Chapman, the best-selling author of the 5 Love Languages series. Open to the community!

Let's Get Fit

“Let's Get Fit" is a specialized fitness initiative tailored for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, the IDD Community. Through this program, participants enhance their fitness, make new friends, and benefit from the physical and mental well-being within our inclusive YMCA community. A free YMCA membership is included with consistent participation. Donations to the Annual Impact Fund make sure this program is available at no cost!

40 Years of Mistletoe

Join us December 2, 2023 for a Half Marathon, 5K and Fun Run. The Mistletoe Run is the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina's largest fundraiser and proceeds benefit the children in our community by providing financial assistance and funding for youth programming like swim lessons, summer camp, before and after school care and more!

Community Impact

We're proud to serve the people of Northwest North Carolina. In 2022, we launched new community programs, invested in our facilities and equipment, and continued to demonstrate that the Y is a safe place for all to focus on their health — spiritually, mentally and physically.

Our goal is to serve as many people in the community as possible that can benefit from our services. We can’t do that without your help.
