YMCA Adirondack Center Campaign
The YMCA Adirondack Center is committed to welcoming all members of our community regardless of race, religion, lifestyle or income. No one is turned away from our Y due to an inability to pay.
This year's Annual Campaign year goal is $125,000 where we hope to raise $55,000 through our public phase of the goal. 100% of every donation made will remain local and support free programming and scholarship assistance for our neighbors in need.
In order to continue creating positive change in our community, we need your help. Help us make this a championship year! Join us in building a stronger community where we can all learn, grow, and thrive. GIVE for a better us.

History of the Center
In June, 2016 the Himoff Family donated a building in Brant Lake, which was formerly Suzie Q’s Restaurant, to the YMCA to serve the local community as well as the Adirondacks regionally. The renamed YMCA Adirondack Center is a year-round multigenerational facility. The goal of the Center is to partner with other service related organizations to increase capacity and serve the unmet needs of all ages.
A summer literacy program (known as No More Learning Gap) for children entering 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades was launched in the summer of 2016. NMLG focuses on preventing the regression of reading skills during the summer by providing academics, camp activities and a field trip each week. This was made possible through the generosity of the Himoff and Powers Families. The Y-Achievers program launched in September, 2016 and was supported by a significant lead gift from Stewart’s Shops and the Dake Family. Its focus is to support middle school students during and after school hours in the areas of academics - STEAM, character and career development, and enrichment activities.
Other programs such as parent/child play gatherings, movie nights, Yoga and Senior Lunch & Learns are offered to members of the community. These activities provide opportunities to engage in healthy living and socialization in a group setting.
