ABOUT THE Y: HISTORY

The historic YMCA of Aberdeen has been a community gem, and a treasure to remember.

Here at the Y, we have provided a safe and positive place for youth and families for 80 years. Still, after 80 years in the Aberdeen community, we continue to dedicate our efforts to provide programs for all ages and abilities offering the opportunity to take part in health, fitness, and recreational activities.
old YMCA
The cornerstone of the Aberdeen YMCA was laid on a Sunday afternoon in September 1921. Since, the official opening of our doors on October 19,1926, the pioneers of the Aberdeen Family YMCA have gone forth advancing our mission.

Driven by the mission of our national organization, we strive to instill the values of respect, responsibility, caring, and honesty in all the services we provide. We help build strong kids, strong families and strong communities.

Our mission here at the Aberdeen Family YMCA is to provide through cooperative relationships, health, fitness, and recreational services for families and individuals of all ages in our community. We will carry out this mission in a Christian environment with services and programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body and serve all people regardless of race, religion or economic background.

What we do and why we do it? We do it to serve our members and our community in Aberdeen and in the Northeast Region of South Dakota. At the Y, we provide healthy opportunities for all; youth, families, adults, and seniors. We especially pride ourselves in opening our doors to everyone whether you’re a beginner or an experienced exerciser.

Northeast Regional Fitness Center The Northeast Regional Health and Fitness Center was designed with families and special interest groups in mind. Then it was built by businesses and individuals who believed in the vision held by hundreds of volunteers who have labored for years on this vital project.

Without the financial support provided by individuals, businesses and government grants, the Northeast Regional Health and Fitness Center could not have become the reality it is today - the home of the Aberdeen Family Y.

The board of directors, the staff, the members, and their guests will carry the historic mission of the YMCA of Aberdeen forward by offering their marvelous new facility as an institution for those, who search for good health and happiness.
