Mission and History

A Brief History of Central Bucks Family YMCA...                             

 

Central Bucks Family YMCA is a charitable non-profit organization whose purpose is to improve the quality of community life.

In the mid-1960's, community leaders proposed the establishment of a Y for the Central Bucks Community with subsequent locations in a store front on North Main Street and the basement of the old Doylestown Borough High School at Broad and Court Streets. In 1972, when fire destroyed the borough school building, Y programs were conducted at several local churches and school buildings.  In 1974, Mr. and Mrs. David Burpee deeded the 7-1/2 acre site at Lower State Road and Memorial Drive to the Y. In 1979, the currently standing facility was opened with a membership of 1500.

To date, Central Bucks Family YMCA has more than 14,000 members with over 5,500 community families as members. The recently expanded facility includes a fitness center with spin room and weight room, Water Park Pool with waterslide and spa, 25 meter 6-lane pool with adult sauna, four multipurpose studios, gymnasium, Child Watch with baby, Tween, and art room, clubhouse, teen center, skate park, outdoor pavilion, playground, and administrative offices. An off-site preschool also operates year round. With programs offered for children, teens and adults in aquatics, fitness, martial arts, dance, sports, and adult leagues, Central Bucks Family YMCA has become the single largest activity center in our community.

The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay. The Y strengthens the spirit, mind and body of its members. We build character by promoting the values of caring, respect, honesty and responsibility.
