If you’re looking to connect and refresh, check out the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit. The iconic community center offers health and wellness services at 7 locations across southeast Michigan and it’s the perfect place for your family.


The YMCA is more than a community fitness center, it’s a place for families to have fun and connect with their neighbors. This summer, different YMCA locations are hosting FREE special events for its members.



All 7 locations in metro Detroit offer strength and cardio equipment, indoor track, and a pool for the fitness routine of your choice. With FREE child watch services, it’s easy to plan your workout without worrying about who will watch the kids.


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.


For 170 years the YMCA has been working in our community and to celebrate this milestone, The Y has challenged everyone in the community to log 170 minutes of movement a week on the easy to use Y170 Challenge Fitness app (available in the App Store and Google Play). It’s a fun FREE family activity that will also give you a chance to win monthly prizes. You DO NOT need to be a member to participate. The YMCA is for everyone and so is this contest.

Find out why the Y is the place for you. Enter to win a FREE 3 Month Family Membership from LittleGuide Detroit.
