We appreciate your patience as we begin the process to reopen our YMCA in phases to ensure that we are meeting or exceeding all guidance and regulations from the State of New Jersey, the CDC and the Department of Health.  We will continuously monitor our progress, requirements from all state and local authorities and other impacts.  As we reopen other amenities / areas we will communicate updates via our website and social media.  See our detailed Reopening Plan here. 

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Y.  Please stay safe and healthy!
