CN123About the Columbia North Y

The Columbia North YMCA, serving North Philadelphia, Fairmount, Kensington, Northern Liberties, Brewerytown and the surrounding communities, offers a wide range of programs for children and teens including swim lessons, sports, fitness, child care and day camps. For adults and seniors, the Y has personal training, a variety of group exercise classes, wellness orientations and free babysitting services.

Not only is the Columbia North Y the place for you to stay active and healthy, but is a safe, fun environment to make new friends and volunteer to help others. There are many programs and services offered at the Y each day to help all our community members learn, grow and thrive in their own unique way.

The Columbia North YMCA is a branch of the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA with a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

Attention Members: The Columbia North gymnasium will be closed from 7AM until 1PM for the “Donuts for Dads event”. The gymnasium will re-open after the event.

Programs that were cancelled due to the Y closing on Saturday, January 23, 2016 will be made up on Sunday, February 21, 2016.

The Y will close at 5PM on Sunday, February 21, 2016 rather than 6PM. The basketball courts will close at 4:15PM that night. We have an All Staff Meeting scheduled for this day in the gymnasium. We appreciate your understanding. We will be open regular hours on Monday, February 22, 2016.

The Columbia North YMCA will begin construction of a NEW Family Locker Room! The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of February 2016. The renovations for Studio 1 are complete!  We hope you enjoy the new studio!

We appreciate your patience during the renovation process!
