It is our desire to be the front porch of the community — to bring together neighbors and newcomers through physical, educational and spiritual growth. We need to keep evolving to meet the needs of our community: 

  • Expand access with new locations and spaces
  • Increase and diversify member engagement 
  • Serve as the community cornerstone of support and innovation

The first two priorities in our plan include:

  • Outdoor Water Park 
  • St. Joseph Community Center & YMCA

Outdoor

Water Park

As a community, we have imagined an outdoor water park, and we’re ready to make it happen at the St. Cloud Area YMCA. The water park will welcome current and new members, as well as draw visitors and guests from across the region. The Outdoor Water Park will: 

  • Fulfill a long-time community desire for an outdoor water park attraction that engages all ages
  • Create multi-generational connections and spaces to enrich relationships and foster community
  • Provide leadership development opportunities for youth and young adults with job and volunteer opportunities each summer
  • Connect to our vision to serve 30% of our community with multiple facilities

St. Joseph Community Center & YMCA

The City of St. Joseph and the St. Cloud Area Family YMCA are partnering to elevate the health and well-being of Central Minnesota. The creation of the St. Joseph Community Center & YMCA will ensure that all community members have access to wellness, recreation and social networks that are key to healthy community life. 

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the St. Joseph Community Center & YMCA will fulfill the community’s requests for gathering space, family recreation options and programming for all ages.

We Need You

Let’s come together to ensure that the Y has the resources to strengthen our communities and make an enduring impact in our own neighborhoods.

  • The St. Cloud Area Y is more than a community wellness and fitness facility. We are a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring access to quality facilities and community programs. 
  • Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for every individual.
  • With a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility, expanded services and resources in these areas will improve individual lives and enrich the St. Cloud and surrounding communities. 

We need your help to make the Outdoor Water Park and St. Joseph Community Center & YMCA a reality. Get involved as a volunteer or donor.
