The mission of the Brainerd Family YMCA is to enhance lives in the Brainerd Lakes Area by connecting individuals and families with opportunities based on christian values that build a healthy spirit, mind & body.
The Brainerd Family YMCA continues to be a community hub, providing programs and services which help develop strong and resilient youth, support healthy living and wellness, and to also create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. Through partnerships with Crow Wing Energized, Crow Wing County Community Services, Brainerd Public Schools, and many others, the Y has worked to be a part of and create supportive programs and class for everyone, including the most vulnerable among us. New programs in the area of community integrated health such as Healthy Weight and Your Child, the National Diabetes Prevention Program, STEM, and Summer Learning Loss Prevention in our youth programs, safety around water programs, among others now complement other programs the Y is known for such as swim team, land and water fitness programs, licensed day care, and youth sports. This program growth supports our belief that the Y is so much more.
