As a YMCA member you join a group of people representing all ages and all walks of life who are passionate about bettering their community.  The Y cause is to strengthen the foundations of community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. For over a century the Mount Desert Island YMCA has dedicated itself to building healthy, confidant, connected and secure children, adults, and families living in the greater MDI community.

Our full-service facility offers a wide variety of fitness, sports, and aquatics programs for the whole family, along with a full-sized gym, 6 lane lap pool, fitness and weight rooms, and indoor track. Fitness is only a small portion of what we do at the Mount Desert Island YMCA. We also provide:

  • A social and educational Maine State Licensed preschool program pre-kindergarteners with a range of full and part time options
  • A variety of summer day camps to keep your kids safe, healthy and active during the summer months

  • Swim lessons and aquatics  programs for the entire family to enjoy
  • Youth and Teen Center - activities, trips and events
  • Active Adult and Active Older Adult group fitness classes and coffee social hour to promote healthy living and socialization
  • Parties and rentals - make your next event extra special with a swimming, sports or other themed party. You can rent pool lanes, the full-gym or half-gym, or even the community room.
  • Membership For All rate structure designed around your income.  Pay what you can afford based on our Income Based Membership rates.  The Y is open to ALL people.
  • Membership and Program Scholarships to individuals, children, and families in need and in turn, the opportunity to participate at the Y regardless of ability to pay. Click Here for a Financial Assistance Form.
