Impact Report

SmartSwimmers purpleweb

The YMCA of El Paso has impacted the community of El Paso for over 133 years. We are the sixth oldest organization in El Paso. The YMCA started out as a Bible study group to keep men away from the “attractiveness of vices”, our mission has not changed. Screen time, sedentary life style, poor diets, etc. have been our “vices” today.



Swim Lessons

The YMCA Swim Lesson Curriculum is a core group of aquatic skills every person needs to be safe around water. As the foundation of our program, these skills allow students to learn correct swim stroke techniques. Students begin with and build upon skills they are ready to learn, helping them to celebrate their successes, build self-confidence, and enjoy learning to swim and water safety.

YMCA Day Camp is an adventure for kids.  Each week offers a new theme and includes a variety of activities, including, arts and crafts, swimming, singing, group games, environmental activities and special events.

In addition to the fun and excitement, YMCA Day Camp also provides opportunities for kids to develop self-esteem, learn to work and play together, develop an appreciation for the environment, learn new skills and develop the values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Faith that will last a lifetime.

Day Camp for All

While our fees are based on the cost of providing each program, we believe that all children should have an opportunity to experience summer day camp.  Participants are expected to pay their fair share; when Strong Kids financial assistance dollars are available, the YMCA will assist any family or individual who wishes to participate but who may have difficulty affording the fee.
