About Us

The Granite YMCA, established in 1854, is part of the worldwide Y organization. With branches in Manchester, Goffstown, Londonderry, Portsmouth, and Rochester, The Granite YMCA focuses on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Across the country, Ys engage 21 million men, women and children – regardless of age, income or background – to improve the nation’s health and well-being, and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. Anchored in more than 10,000 communities, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.

Our association has five branches and two overnight camps located throughout New Hampshire. Learn more about each location here:

There's something for everyone at the Y! We offer state-of-the-art fitness facilities with free weights, personal training, group fitness classes and a friendly, knowledgeable staff to help you get started and stay motivated. We also offer full-size gymnasiums for basketball, dodgeball, and volleyball, as well as indoor and outdoor pools for lap swimming, lessons, and competitive swimming, as well as a wide array of full and part time child care and after school programs to help your kids grow healthy, happy and strong. Summers are a particularly exciting time at the Y, with more than 35 exciting day, overnight, and specialty camps for kids of all ages.
