At the Y, we believe that all kids deserve the chance to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why every summer our camps open up to create exciting, safe communities where young people can explore the outdoors, discover new experiences, and build self esteem and social and interpersonal skills. Through outdoor activities, arts programs, youth sports, service projects and more, kids in our community are learning about themselves and making new friends at Y Day Camp. And while they’re at it, they discover skills and values they can use for a lifetime; skills like teamwork, responsibility, respect and sharing.

At the June board meeting, the CHCYMCA policy on board meetings was updated. Board meetings are open to the public with the following conditions, as determined by the Board of Directors:
Jerry had always been active and healthy. From his time as a sprinter in college, he’d always been a picture of health. He also dedicated his life to helping others. From teaching in newly integrated schools in the South in the 60s to working in group homes and helping people with drug addictions, Jerry had always been there for his neighbors.
But he wasn’t quite sure where to go when he needed help. After beating a drug addiction himself, then falling into ill health, Jerry began to look for ways to rebuild a healthy life. And that’s where the Y came into the picture.
Jerry had spent time at the Y as a kid, and now as a senior, he came to the Chapel Hill Y looking for a place to begin to build a healthy life all over again. What he discovered was so much more. Through the Y’s Open Doors scholarship program, he was able to get a membership at a reduced rate, and begin the road to a healthier life.
“It’s so important in my life,” says Jerry. “But not just for the exercise. The Y is a community, and I’ve made real friends here. It’s as important to me that I get to see and talk with friends as it is to be able to exercise. And I’m so thankful for that.”
Through the Y’s We Build People Program, people every day are being supported right here in our community. From providing life saving swim lessons to creating memories in summer camp, the Y is changing lives every day. And you can help. By supporting the We Build People Campaign, you’re supporting your neighbors. And when you do that, it’s a better life for us all.
At the Y, we believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. And that’s what Y Afterschool is all about. We’re dedicated to creating a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and develop social skills. Our afterschool program serves all of the Chapel Hill – Carrboro City Schools from Kindergarten through 8th grade. It includes free time, structured physical activities and crafts, and supervised school work time.

At the Y, we believe the ability to swim is a critical life skill for everyone. In swim lessons, we use a variety of fun methods to help kids overcome fears, build confidence in the water and develop skills that last a lifetime. Qualified instructors meet swimmers at their own level and celebrate all successes. By educating and partnering with swimmers, we’re determined to prevent drowning in our community.
