Welcome to the Y!

Strut your stuff for a good cause! The Y's Spring Chicken 5K on May 2 is fun for all with the option to run or walk. Proceeds benefit the Y's Annual Campaign which helps the Y provide opportunities for kids and adults in Northwest Illinois to build self-confidence.

YMCA Camp Discovery

At Y day camp, we are here to make your kids feel welcome. To help them quickly realize this is a place where they belong and can be themselves. Try new things. Make new friends. And be a part of something great.
One week or the whole summer. Indoors and out. On their own or in a group. Archery to arts, canoeing to cannonballs at YMCA Camp Discovery your kids will have an amazing experience.
