Welcome to the Friendship YMCA

Located in Lower Paxton Township, the Friendship YMCA (formerly the Friendship Community Center) is a beautiful facility full of opportunity! The 51,000 square foot Friendship YMCA includes an aerobics studio, classrooms, gymnasium, locker rooms, large family aquatics center, a walking track, spinasium, and a wellness center for both weights and cardio.

Whether you’re looking to build strength, make new friends, or get active as a family, the Friendship YMCA is the place to be! With classes and programs for all ages, the YMCA provides the perfect location to get started. As we open this new collaborative effort with Lower Paxton Township, we will be welcoming new friends and neighbors into our YMCA family.
