    The Hammond Area YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, family time, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We're more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

    Learning, playing and growing together

    Our Discovery Preschool program is planned and based on a set of beliefs that children learn best from hands – on activities. We believe that learning needs to be active. Our Discovery Preschool program provides the tools and activities for the children to experiment while promoting our four core values that include: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. The thing that makes our program unique is that swimming is included at our YMCA branch location. Minimum – 6 Maximum - 16
