Swimming has been an integral part of the Sumter Family YMCA (South Carolina) ever since the construction of the first building in 1911. The facility was described as one of the “newest and best YMCA buildings in any city the size of Sumter in America.” One of the main features was a heated swimming pool in the basement, which provided state-of–the-art accommodations at that time.

Swimming lessons were provided and a swim team was formed. Initially, the facilities at the Y were designed for young boys, but special classes and times were created for young ladies to also participate and learn how to swim.


Summer is over with most kids returning to school this week. So it is time for teachers and books, and time to put away toys and games.

Not so fast!

Play is increasingly recognized by health and education professionals as a valuable learning tool that helps make kids smarter. Even business people are promoting the value of a playful attitude in terms of staying creative, innovative and engaged.

Kids gather information through sensory actions (touch, hear, see) and develop critical thinking skills (observing, evaluating and reasoning) through play. Engaging in play at the Y gives kids a chance to be active while cooperating with each other.


The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay.
