The Lompoc Family YMCA, established in 1981, is a branch of the Channel Islands YMCA, an association of seven YMCAs throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. The Lompoc Family YMCA offered the community popular and nationally recognized programs, involving 1800 youth and their families annually, including childcare, parent-child programs, youth sports, youth day and resident camps all from rented spaces within the community.
April 22, 2006 the Lompoc Family YMCA opened the doors to our 14,000-square-foot facility at 201 W College Ave. We had a dedicated team of volunteers and YMCA executives who helped raised funds. Since the 2006 opening we have continued to grow and have become an important part of the community offering many programs such as child care, parent-child programs, youth sports and wellness, youth day and sleepaway camps, adult wellness and many more. Mission:The Channel Islands YMCA is a charitable organization providing programs based upon Christian principles to men, women, and children of all ages, races, religious beliefs and economic status to develop and enrich the spirit, mind and body.
