YMCA Reopening Update

June 15, 2020

The YMCA of Broome County will continue to follow intructions from NYS and Governor Cuomo as we have since our initial closing date. As we continue to navigate through the constant changes in updates and guidelines, we hope to be included in phase 4 of the NYS reopening plan at this time. 

Summer Camp and summer swim lessons have unfortunately been cancelled for 2020. All other youth and adult programs and sports are still postponed at this time. 

We will continue our Childcare and Housing programs as usual, and continue to focus on screenings before entering the building and optimal hygiene.

We greatly appreciate your continued support through this difficult time as we strive to serve our community.

We will keep our website and Facebook updated as we receive more information from NYS.
