If you’re looking to connect and refresh in 2021, check out the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit. The iconic community center offers safe health and wellness services at 7 locations across southeast Michigan. Enter to win a FREE family membership to the YMCA.


After a difficult year, we all need to reset and refresh. The YMCA has the space and the place to do that. All 7 locations in metro Detroit offers strengthen and cardio equipment, indoor track, and a pool for the fitness routine of your choice. Beginning in February the FREE 2 hour child watch services will return, allowing you the opportunity to workout without worrying about what happens with the kids. If you need to get out the house for a workout now but need to bring the kids, schedule a personal training session at the Birmingham Family YMCA. Your entire family can be in a workout room with an instructor for a family workout.


Swim lessons and workouts are popular fitness features but they’re also there for fun. The Boll Family Y (Detroit), Carls Family YMCA (Milford) and Downriver YMCA (Southgate) have family pools with slides and splash pads and you can reserve them for private play. Need a place for a winter birthday? The Farmington Family Y has a private warm temperature pool families can rent for parties.


The YMCA is a place for the whole family. Whether it’s child watch for a couple hours or camp all summer long, the Y understands what parents need. A great example is the Y Learning Centers. When school went virtual and created challenges for working parents, the YMCA opened its doors to provide kids a safe place to do virtual school, with in-person assistance. They have also provided free food bundles to families in need, no membership or registration required.


If you’re looking for community and wellness in 2021, look no further than The Y. A Y Membership is universal and can be used at all 7 locations. Join in January and get a discount on your first month’s membership. Enter to win 3 FREE months membership from LittleGuide Detroit! BONUS: Y members receive a discount on Summer Camp.
