Chilly Challenge

Join Us January 19th for the chilly challenge!

We are inviting all Mataucha friends and families to come out Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 1:00 pm to YMCA Camp Mataucha for a wonderful event to help send kids to our summer camp. Your willingness to jump into the icy waters of Smith Pond will help raise funds for kids to enjoy the magic of YMCA Camp Mataucha, through the Meghan Beebe Camp Scholarship Fund.

If you are interested in jumping, donating, or volunteering, please call our Camp Office at (860) 274-4820 or email Adam. 

Anyone interested in accepting the challenge this year needs to be at least 18 years and to have raised a minimum of $100. Jumpers are encouraged to put together teams of 4 and as always costumes are welcome!

One Number - Giving Tuesday

'Tis the Season of Giving!

Every day the Greater Waterbury YMCA works to ensure that people have access to the resources they need to live healthy, connected, and secure lives--no matter who they are or where they’re from.

As the year draws to a close, we ask you to consider making an end-of-year contribution to support our cause. Because of the generosity of donors like you, our community is growing stronger every single day. 

Learn more here and donate today for youth development, for healthy living, for social responsibility.

Ready Set Go - A Free 12 Week weight loss and nutrition program to hold you accountable and help you reach your personal goals. 

Free babysitting while you work out.
