Get Started & Orientation

Base Camp & Get Started YMCA OF MIDDLETOWN

Base Camp was designed to provide a smaller more private space for personal training, small group trianing and individual members to enjoy a quiet workout in a less crowded space.

This room was also designed with the understanding that starting a fitness routine can be very difficult for new or returning health seekers. We want you to feel comfortable, confident and successful on your path to beginning a new healthier lifestyle so we’ve created a 9 week Get Started Program to help you set safe attainable fitness goals, create a balanced routine, and encourage you to work at your own pace with guidance and support from qualified fitness professionals.

What is the GET STARTED Program?

  • Weekly 45-minute sessions with an Exercise Coach in a small group following a 9 week lesson plan
  • Exercises begin slowly, safely and gradually increasing over the 9 weeks
  • Informational handouts on wellness and nutrition
  • Your exercise coach will closely monitor your attendance, provide support, motivation and encouragement while teaching you the basics of fitting activity into your lifestyle
  • All coaching sessions will be at the same time, on your selected day of the week
  • Sessions cannot be made up on an individual basis


This $25.00 program is available to YMCA Members only.
Upon completion of the program, your $25 will be credited to your YMCA account for use towards the purchase of YMCA apparel and merchandise available at our Welcome Center desk.

Annual Campaign


2019 Strong Kids Campaign

Did you know that the Y is committed to making services available to all, regardless of their ability to pay?  The YMCA of Middletown has a history of over 130 years of helping those  who are most in need.  We are able to keep this commitment through the generosity of our members, local businesses and community donors who support our Strong Kids Campaign.

Strong Kids scholarship assistance allows us to dramatically change the lives of those who may not be able to pay for YMCA services. By contributing to our Strong Kids Campaign you will change the life of someone right here in your local community.

  • A child attends a quality after school program while their single parent works.
  • A senior citizen takes water exercise classes remaining active and healthy thereby remaining independent and living in their own home.
  • A child experiences a memorable summer day camp after losing a parent earlier that year.
  • A teen participates in the Y’s Youth and Government program and develops the courage to stand up in front of 450 peers to debate the merits of their proposed bill.

The YMCA does not receive ongoing governmental support, nor does it receive United Way funding, so we count on your support to our Strong Kids Campaign. Every year the YMCA provides over $200,000 of scholarship assistance in our local communities, thanks to the Strong Kids Campaign.

The overall goal for our 2019 Strong Kids Campaign is $155,000.
Please help us reach our goal.

Community Events


Throughout the year the Y hosts events that help strengthen our community, whether its a Family Night giving family members a place to bond or one of our annual races that promotes a healthy lifestyle, all of our events help us give back to the community.
