The mission of the Penobscot Bay YMCA is to nurture the spirits, minds and bodies of individuals and families within our service area. In building strong kids, strong families and strong communities, we will act within the framework of the YMCA's core values of caring, honesty, responsibility and respect.

A membership at the Penobscot Bay YMCA is very affordable. Anyone interested in becoming a member can take out a complimentary one-week pass. This is a great way to see what the YMCA is all about. Membership includes member rates for YMCA programs and access to Family Prime Time, free access to select classes and full use of the following areas during open time: Main Pool and Therapy Pool, Gymnasium, Children's Play Gym, Fitness Center, Walk/Jog Track and Rock Climbing Center. Free guest passes are also given with a membership to share with friends or family.

The Penobscot Bay YMCA also has a wonderful Child Care department. Start your child's journey to becoming a lifelong learner at the Penobscot Bay YMCA. The YMCA Child Care is dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable child care. Our Child Care Center provides family-centered, values-based programs to nurture children's healthy development. The YMCA's well-trained staff strives to create a caring community of leaners for infants to school age youth. Our teachers are partners with parents and other caregivers, working together to fully support children's individual needs. YMCA Child Care programs include: Infant Care, Toddler Care, Preschool Care, Before/After School Care, Early Dismissal Program and Kid's Club.

If you have a specific skill or interest you would like to share with the YMCA, volunteer opportunities are always available. Please speak with Susan Howland, Operations Director, at the YMCA at 236-3375.
