Getting Maddy involved in the YMCA gymnastics program is one of the best decisions we've made for our daughter. In addition to developing physical strength and her gymnastic skills, she's learned to be more responsible with her time, balancing schoolwork and practice. Her teammates are now some of her closest friends and through all the practice and competitions, she's learned to celebrate successes, encourage those who are struggling and, if you fall, you need to get up and try again.
It was an easy choice to partner with the Milwaukee Y for our employee wellness program. The breadth of high quality programming they offer along with their enthusiasm and passion for the Milwaukee community are unmatched.
Miracle League is rewarding for the kids but even more so for the parents, volunteers, and spectators. We tell our friends and family to come to games with us because no matter what type of day you had, it will be greatly improved by watching these kids play and smile. We love Miracle League, so please keep it going strong!
This was Ethan's third year at Y Day Camp, and he couldn't have had a better summer. The hours are flexible, it's affordable, and the counselors are a lot fun. We recommend Y Day Camp to all kids, and we'll definitely be back next summer!
“At the Y, we resolve to be light in this darkness. We stand strongly in opposition to the hate, racism and white supremacist ideology that fueled the violence in Charlottesville. We stand against hate and violence anywhere, in any form. We stand for all. We stand for caring, honesty, respect and responsibility—values that can lead the way to a brighter tomorrow for our nation and for all who do and all who wish to call it home.”
