About Us


To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

The YMCA movement is unique. We fill a void in the community. The YMCA welcomes and supports all individuals and families. We help develop and instill values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. The YMCA is a place for people of all ages, races, religions, incomes and abilities. We truly believe that we do build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.


The Licking County Family YMCA is a member service organization committed to providing programs and services to meet the needs of our community. We are committed to providing quality programs and services with the highest level of professionalism. We endeavor to provide clean, safe facilities with the most up-to-date equipment available. We always seek to exceed members expectations at every opportunity.

No one will be turned away due to the inability to pay.

Our vision becomes a reality when community leaders lend their support, when membership grows, when the YMCA is known for its high quality community service, and when the YMCA helps participants reach their fullest potential.


Thirty-two years after the founding of the first YMCA in London, 35 young men from Newark, Ohio met in a Baptist Church and organized the Newark YMCA; now known as the Licking County Family YMCA.
