Copley-Price Family YMCA

2nd Annual "It's For The Kids" Gala

Every Summer Has a Story

Join us on Saturday, May 21 for the 2nd Annual “It’s For The Kids” Every Summer Has a Story Gala Event at the Copley-Price Family YMCA. All proceeds support youth and camp programming to local children in need.

Copley-Price Family YMCA has helped over 8,000 youth grow through:

  • Preschool (infant & toddler scholarships)
  • Camps (winter & summer camps)
  • Swim Lessons (Swimming with Autism, women-only swim)
  • Athletics (soccer & basketball)
  • Teen Programs (Teen Achievers & Y-Strong Girls)

We proudly serve a community that has nearly 40% of residents living at or below the poverty line, and we keep the promise to never turn away due to inability to pay. With 36% of our members receiving scholarships to participate in membership and programs, the impact is real.
