The Y is a charity, dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. With programs from A to Z—from afterschool programs to summer camp, from youth sports to Zumba, we don't just strengthen individuals, we strengthen communities. Every year, we raise funds to ensure that those who need us most have access to quality programs, activities and facilities. When you give to the YMCA you make a difference in the lives of people from all backgrounds and economic levels.
Since 1920, our Sioux Falls Family YMCA camps have provided generations of campers with a safe, meaningful and life-changing outdoor camping experience. Children return year after year to enjoy our beautiful camp property, nestled along the forested shoreline of the Big Sioux River. While camp is close to home in the heart of Sioux Falls, it feels like a world away. Although our facilities and location are terrific, we know that it’s our counselors that ultimately make the camp experience so special.
HOOD MAGAZINE - Women are the primary caregivers for their families, their spouses, their children, their in-laws, and often, their own mothers, but what they sometimes fail to do is take care of their own health. Kelly Sue Campbell, a mother of 3 and wife, identifies with the struggle of putting everyone’s needs before her own. It wasn’t until she saw her waist line expanding and self-esteem lowering that she realized she too was putting others before herself. That is when her husband, Ryan, gave her the gift of health; he bought her a Personal Training package from the YMCA.
