Board of Trustees

Thank you for visiting the website of the YMCA of Newark and Vicinity. The Board of Trustees welcomes you, whether you are a long time member or a new visitor.

At our headquarters at 600 Broad Street, the fitness facilities are state-of-the-art for the enjoyment of our members and guests, thriving sports and recreation programs abound and the residential floors provide comfortable accommodations for the residents we serve. Outside of Newark, our camp in Sussex County offers a beautiful lakeside setting for all of its guests, from business people on a corporate retreat to city youngsters on a day trip to the country.

As we strive to encourage healthy lifestyles and strong families, we rely on the hard work of our staff and volunteers. Donations and sponsorship support from our friends make that work possible. Please click the "Donate" button on the right of the page to support us in any way that you can.

And please come visit us in person - join as a member, visit as a guest, or attend one of our events. We hope to see you soon!
