Capital Area YMCA

About Capital Area YMCA

The Capital Area YMCA is an organization with a long standing history in the Mercer County area. Founded in 1856, this Y was one of the very first in the United States of America, considering that YMCA’s did not come to the USA until 1850. The very first professional basketball game was played at the YMCA in Trenton; our history has been proud and strong, but our future is even stronger.

Here at the Capital Area YMCA, the Board of Directors and the Staff share a commitment to nurturing the potential of our most valuable asset as a community, our children, promoting healthy living and fostering a strong sense of social responsibility. The Capital Area YMCA is committed to creating an environment that allows families and communities to grow together.
