With more than 150 year history in our community, the Bangor YMCA touches our lives and enhances our community in many different ways. Member or not, the many diverse and far reaching programs offered by the Bangor YMCA impacts us all and makes everyone in the Bangor Region a part of the “Y family.” With programs that promote health, fitness, nutrition, cardiac rehabilitation, cancer survivor support groups, summer camps, aquatics, outdoor recreation, adventure excursions, leadership development, traditional sports, martial arts, personal training,  child care, before and after school programs, youth outreach programs, and educational partnerships, there is no area of our lives or our community that the Bangor YMCA does not impact. The Bangor YMCA is not just a fitness club, it is a community that values youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.  Changing Lives…..That’s Our Y!
