The Palomar Family YMCA wants to thank our members, supporters and community for their patience, commitment and passion for our Y. We are grateful that you are a part of our Y community.    

The Palomar Family YMCA, which has been closed to facility members due to the COVID-19 pandemic, currently remains closed.  However, we continue to serve the critical needs in Escondido as we have for the past decades through many of our social service programs. During this time, we remain open and are operating our Transition-Aged Youth Academy (TAY) and gymnastic programs onsite. YMCA Childcare Resource Service will relocate, but will continue to serve Escondido families. Our Y also continues to manage the school-age childcare programs for the Escondido Union School District and will continue to serve the children and families on school campuses.

To bridge the gap in your fitness routine, we encourage you to join us at the Joe & Mary Mottino Family Y in Oceanside or the Rancho Family Y in Rancho Peñasquitos for fitness activities and lap swim.

We again thank you sincerely for your support and hope you’ll remain involved as we continue to serve the Escondido community.
