About Us

The Y is a cause-driven, charitable organization committed to strengthening community and transforming lives.

The Y is open to and serves all.  Every day, we work collectively with our community partners to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has access to the YMCA. We are for Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

Our History

Since March 1904, the YMCA movement has been serving the Canandaigua community. The original building, founded in 1905, was located across from our current location. The original facility was equipped with a gym, game room, meeting room and bowling alley. Our current location was acquired in 1959.
