In Orange County, no other place has a 100+ year legacy of learning and laughter with youth and adult programs like the Anaheim Family YMCA. New generations are discovering what locals have known for years — this is the best place for youth swim classes, sports programs, STEM and education courses, performing and visual arts, day and resident camps, adaptive programs for special needs teens and adults, plus recreation choices for pre-school to senior citizens. Our growing diversity of programs ensures we’re one of the best donation causes in the community, and helps us give safe options to over 7,000 kids each day after school. Whether you join for the fun, or give to the cause, you’re welcomed at the Anaheim Family YMCA.


Sure, Anaheim is our first name, but it’s not the only place that we offer ways for you and your kids to experience learning, sports and camps. See your options in Anaheim, Stanton, Cypress, La Palma, Big Bear/Arrowhead, and Catalina Island.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and dad figures at our YMCA! Thank you for all you do to keep families and our community healthy and strong.

Over 110 years ago, a young woman raised by her single father wanted to celebrate fatherhood. The first Father’s Day celebration was held at the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910.

In honor of todays special day, we will be featuring some of our very own Y staff through out the day! Keep a look out for those Super Dads!

At the Y, swim lessons save lives. They allow kids and teens to set goals and achieve success, learn water safety, and enjoy swimming as a form of exercise. Youth learn not only how to have fun learning how to swim, but they also gain lifelong confidence in and out of the water.

The Anaheim Family YMCA is thinking about the families at Robb Elementary School and the Uvalde, TX community. These moments are extremely difficult to process and understand. As always, we will do everything we can at the Y to support our communities during the darkest times. We work every day to give youth the opportunity to live a healthy life and reach their full potential. We are here to bring people and communities together, and to contribute to a stronger, more cohesive community for all. Our hearts go out to the families who are facing such profound loss and heartbreak.
