Maui YMCA Facts
The Maui YMCA opened in 1960 in an office space on Main Street, Wailuku. The first programs included day camps and environmental camps at YMCA Camp Keanae. A capital campaign was launched in the 1980’s and a new building was built in Kahului in 1990. Just three years later, an addition was added that included racquetball courts, weight and cardio room.
In 2008 a $5 million capital campaign was launched to include renovations to the current building and add a gymnasium. All the renovations were completed with $3.5 million raised, but the gym was never built. The Y is known for being family oriented and it is the place where they know your name.
