The YMCA of Middletown is a community based not for profit organization dedicated to putting Judeo–Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Currently, we operate primarily out of three facilities including our main branch and association headquarters in Middletown known as the YMCA of Middletown, the South Orange Family YMCA (nicknamed "SOFY") in Monroe, and The Center For Youth Programs in Middletown- the home of our First Step Preschool, our summer day camp in Middletown and many other youth programs.
Thanks to a wonderful grant made possible by State Senator John Bonacic, supplemented by funds raised locally, we built the YMCA of Sullivan County, a three thousand square foot family center serving families in Sullivan County and drawing families from Orange County to the great outdoors.
In addition to all the programs offered at these four facilities, we conduct a before & after school program known as Club Kid in over 20 schools throughout Orange County and operate 6 summer day camps: Camp Funshine in Middletown, Camp Discovery in Harriman State Park, Camp Robbins in Walden, YMCA Town of Thompson Camp at the Town of Thompson Town Park, Rock Hill Environmental Camp at the YMCA of Sullivan County and Preschool Summer Camp at the South Orange Family YMCA.
The YMCA has three primary areas of focus: Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. Every program or class we offer, every initiative we launch, and each fundraiser we organize is intended to make a positive impact in one or more of these critical areas. Simply put, the YMCA helps make this region a better place to live and we hope you will join us in our effort.
