SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
The YMCA of Callaway County exists to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.
We do it by teaching kids new skills that build self-confidence, character values and leadership. We do it by helping adults and families lead healthy lifestyles. We do it by connecting older adults to an active support network. We do it by providing outlets to give back to those in need. People engage with the Y on one level, but they soon find a deeper meaning to their activities and a connection to those around them. Ultimately, at its highest form, they feel compelled to volunteer, to give back and help others strengthen the entire community.
Here are just a few of the YMCA programs helping to strengthen the Callaway County area:
Middle school students enrolled in Callaway County Schools get the chance to mingle and dance the night away at the beloved Y Teen Dances.

Annual Auction & Dinner
SAVE THE DATE - April 8, 2017
This event includes dinner as well as a live and silent auction with all proceeds supporting YMCA scholarship programs for families and children in need.
The YMCA has given out over $200,000 in scholarships since 2010 and is on track to give out $40,000 in 2016. Our scholarship program makes YMCA services accessible to over 1,100 individuals, who may not otherwise have been able to participate.
Healthy Kids Day
The goal of the YMCA is to provide more opportunity for family time and to teach the importance of health and wellness to our community. We feel this event will allow families that opportunity along with celebrating Healthy Kids Day on the same day as other YMCA’s across the nation.
