Promoting Youth Development

Lakewood Family YMCA Gymnastics Center, Stretching to New Limits

On June 13th we celebrated the expansion of the Lakewood Family YMCA Gymnastics Center with a ribbon cutting complete with community residents and dignitaries.  Lakewood Family YMCA Gymnastics has been an important part of strengthening local youth for the past 35 years. Not surprising, some of our original gymnasts  from 1985 are now parents whose children are currently benefitting from the new facility. Serving more than 1,000 youth a year, this program is a bedrock of movement education for the Lakewood community.
