We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.

Slate Belt Branch







Right in the heart of the Slate Belt area in Pen Argyl, the Slate Belt Branch of the Greater Valley YMCA opened in 2015 after 15 years of planning. The newly renovated facility currently includes a Wellness Center with a new state-of-the-art gym, swimming pool, various weight lifting stations, Child Watch, two multi-purpose rooms, and a kitchen.


At the Slate Belt Branch of the Greater Valley YMCA, you will find community programming for all ages, backgrounds, fitness levels, and more.


Greater Valley YMCA-Slate Belt Branch offers child care and Pre-School. Enroll your child today, and experience peace of mind with our qualified, dedicated, and compassionate educational staff.


The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected, and secure children, adults, families, and communities. The Y is a nonprofit like no other. Our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.
