Programs and Schedules

Do you have a 7th Grader?  The 7th Grade Initiative is a program that provides a free Summit YMCA membership to all Summit 7th Graders, free personal training sessions on the cardio and strength equipment, and a few 7th Grade social events at the Y during the year. Once 7th Graders complete their free training sessions they can workout at the Summit Y without parental supervision for the entire school year. It’s a wonderful, inclusive community program.

Speak Up Summit
Speak Up Summit is a community organization that helps you stay on top of what is happening in the school district, and more importantly, how it will impact your children and their ability to receive an excellent education.

Our members are well-informed, and share what they know to keep everyone else up to date. Parents of students and the community at large are encouraged to attend!!
