About the Y:
March 27, 1957, marked the 60th anniversary of YMCA of the Suncoast, a charitable organization that began with a powerful idea and belief — to strengthen the foundations of community. It was our cause then, and it’s our cause today. On May 4, 2017, we honored our volunteers, donors, members and partners for being ROCK SOLID in spirit, mind and body!
Since our founding, the Y has grown from its first facility in 1965 to eight branches plus school-age program locations serving Citrus, Hernando, Pasco and Pinellas counties.
We are happy to share that in 2019 the Y organization will celebrate its 175th anniversary.

They will be responsible for their device.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided. We ask that you send your child with an afternoon snack and a refillable water bottle.
