Ozarks Regional YMCA
As a member of the Ozarks Regional YMCA group, the YMCA of Springfield's locations have kept their doors open to peoples of all faiths, races, income levels, and abilities for more than 122 years. Today staffers continue to uphold the YMCA’s core values of honesty, acceptance, and fairness as they ensure each location is a safe place for members to play, exercise, and strengthen family bonds weakened by overzealous games of Monopoly. Adults can take aquatic, boot-camp, and Zumba classes or workout within fitness centers filled with cardio and strength-training equipment. Kids, meanwhile, can join in on youth basketball and soccer matches or stimulate their imagination, mental development, and growth in afterschool programs, a home-schooling program, and art classes. To help families grow and play together, the G. Pearson Ward branch offers family art nights and rock-climbing activities.
