The YMCA was proud to partner with the City of Salem's Recreation Department in 2016. Through this partnership, we have been able to provide programs such as summer camp, sports leagues, family days and more.

“I am excited to begin working in collaboration with the YMCA to implement recreation programming in Salem. Serving over 10,000 neighborhoods and communities, the YMCA has a reputation of service for community and expertise in the field of recreation and programming. Salem residents of all ages will benefit from this experience and from a pooling of organizational resources for an even better programming service in our community.” - Bill Gruen, City Manager
