About the Y

The Stuart C Gildred Family YMCA is a branch of the Channel Islands YMCA, a charitable organization providing programs based upon Christian principles to men, women, and children of all ages, races, religious beliefs, and economic status, to develop and enrich the spirit, mind and body.

At the Y, strengthening communities is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

We want you to take advantage of the Y wherever you live, work or travel. With Nationwide Membership, you have the flexibility to use participating Y facilities across the United States at no extra charge. Commuting?  Visit one of the other Channel Islands YMCA branches listed to the right.
