About the Y of Palestine

The Palestine YMCA is a 501c(3) non profit organization that welcomes all who wish to participate. The Palestine YMCA raises funds each year to help provide a safe and positive place where such values as caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are much more than just words. 


In the spirit of providing programs and services that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all, the Palestine YMCA, within its available resources, will provide assistance for any individual who desires to participate regardless of age, gender, race or religious belief.


A Message from Our Chief Executive Officer

Since 1892 the Palestine YMCA has been a gathering place for fellowship, sports, personal fitness, and for social gatherings for individuals and families. But as our members know, it is not the facilities that makes the Y special…it is the people.


Our members and guests LOVE THIS PLACE, and it is because the Y has a great staff.
From the fully trained child care team to our fun-loving group exercise instructors to our ever-diligent lifeguards, the Palestine YMCA staff provides a safe, fun environment that supports a healthy lifestyle. I invite you to get started today!
