A community presence in Saskatoon since 1908, YMCA remains true to its lasting mission of physical and social enrichment for men, women, and kids of all ages. Staff members uphold the YMCA’s core values of honesty, acceptance, and fairness as they invest in their community’s children and strengthen family bonds critically weakened by overzealous games of Monopoly. They pump up adult fitness regimens with aquatic fitness and boot-camp classes, squash courts, and a full gymnasium outfitted with equipment for basketball, volleyball, and rope-skipping. They’ve also filled their fitness centre with free weights, cardio equipment, and weight machines. When they’re not helping adults trim down waistlines during yoga, cycling, and aerobics classes, staff members are getting back in touch with their inner children. They stimulate imagination, mental development, and growth as they lead children’s day camps, after-school programs, and art classes. This YMCA outpost further strengthens and unites the Saskatoon community through the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign, which raises much-needed funding for kids and families who can’t afford the full cost of any of YMCA’s progressive programs.
