It’s where youth go to learn new skills, socialize with peers, and participate in meaningful activities that contribute to lasting personal and social change. The Community YMCA facility offers the community:
- a large gymnasium housing two full-size basketball courts
- a community kitchen
- arts rooms
- Youth Space
- social areas where youth can relax and be themselves
The Community YMCA facility is also adjacent to a YMCA Nova Scotia Works Employment Centre and houses the administrative offices of YPHD, Community Outreach, YMCA Senior Snow Removal, and Big Cove YMCA Camp in their shoulder season. The Community YMCA is more than just a building, it’s truly the centre of our community. Each of our programs are community-focused, with the goal to engage and build each individual member of the community. We invite you to visit the Community Y and explore our many programs and services.
