YMCA in Hackensack, NJ

In today's changing society, the importance of teaching children and adults to be healthy, confident, and connected is paramount. The Y is the ideal way to learn these crucial life skills and keep up healthy habits. At the YMCA of Greater Bergen County, we're dedicated to building secure communities in which children and adults alike can thrive. Our Hackensack, NJ team works every day to inspire our patrons to make healthy choices and be mentors to children in need. All in all, it's our goal to help the community come together to achieve a common goal. Whether you're a member, volunteer, or just perusing area resources, the YMCA is here for you.

Premium Programs for Children and Youth

The saying "children are the future" may be cliché, but that doesn't make it any less true. At the YMCA of Greater Bergen County, we're dedicating to producing premier programs for children and teenagers. We provide a wide array of options, and there's certainly something to spark your child's interest. Some of our most popular programs for children and youth include:

  • Daycare: We understand child care is at a premium. That's why we offer affordable care for children aged 2 and up. Children are divided into groups based on age—toddlers (ages 2-3), preschool (ages 3-5), and school-aged children (5 and up).
  • Summer Camp: We offer many summer camp programs in Hackensack. This includes everything from day camps to sleepaway camps, all designed to teach participants new skills and help them build confidence.
  • Youth Sports: Participation in youth sports is an excellent way to get your child involved in an after-school program. We offer all kinds of sports, including basketball, martial arts, and dodgeball. If your child is between the ages of 3 and 17, we have a program for them!
  • Birthday Parties: Make your child's birthday extra-special with a party at the YMCA! Celebrate with a pool party, sports party, or pool and gym party, all at an affordable rate.

Focus on Your Health and Wellness at the YMCA

Promoting health and wellness is a major part of our mission. Exercise is crucial at all ages, and we want to be sure we provide you with the resources you need to keep up with workouts.

  • Group Exercise: Taking group exercise classes is an excellent way to get moving. We offer traditional classes focusing on endurance or strength, but we also have some more exciting options. At the YMCA, you can learn to salsa or the fundamentals of yoga, all while staying in shape.
  • Wellness Center: Ready to commit to the health of you and your family? Become a member of the YMCA and utilize all the resources our Wellness Center has to offer.

Enjoy Aquatics Programs and Swim Lessons

Aquatics and swim lessons are a fun-filled way to stay healthy for children and adults alike. Learning to swim early is essential for water safety, and the YMCA is proud to present several programs to help our community learn to swim.

  • Swim Lessons: We offer basic and advanced swimming lessons for students of all ages. We're happy to teach infants and toddlers, as well as adults who never got the chance to learn. It's never too late to develop this crucial skill!
  • Water Safety: Parents are sometimes nervous about allowing their children around water. However, you can alleviate much of that stress with the YMCA's water safety program.
  • American Red Cross Certification: If you'd like to become a lifeguard and are over the age of 15, you're eligible for several of our courses. Besides lifeguarding, you can earn certification in CPR and take a water safety instructor course.
