Since opening in October of 2020 the new YMCA of Indian Land has made quite an impact on the community. The state of the art facility offers something for every age and fitness level. They also provide financial assistance for those in need of support.

“The YMCA has a robust scholarship program for people who need assistance with membership dues, program fees, childcare fees,” Chamblee said. “We know that it’s been a hard year for people. Our CEO has put a goal of giving out 4,000 scholarships in the next year.”

“Indian Land is just growing so quickly, people are moving rapidly, headquarters expanding, so we thought this was a great place to be,” Marketing and Development Director for the YMCA Olivia Chamblee said.

At the Y, the belief is that the ability to swim is a critical life skill. When you learn to swim, you gain confidence, acquire safety/rescue skills and experience water activities you can enjoy for a lifetime. Throughout all stages, they teach students how to be safer and more comfortable in the water.  Whether you have no experience or comfort in the water, or are looking to perfect your swim strokes, they have the class for you. Private lessons and lifeguard training are also available.

Personal Training:

Meet your goals with one-on-one, partner or small group training with a nationally certified personal trainer.  Our trainers will develop a specific plan that is personalized to your interests and fitness goals. Sign up for individual or small group training in packages of four, eight, or twelve sessions.

Group Exercise:

All YMCA memberships grant you access to dozens of free group exercise classes, ranging from Aqua Conditioning to Zumba. They have classes ranging from basic to advanced skill levels, but most are accessible for all levels-where modifications can be made to decrease or increase the intensity.  They also offer Silver Sneakers classes, designed especially for seniors.

Summer Camps:

Indian Land YMCA will be offering two specialty summer camps this year.  Summer sports camp and Wet n Wacky Summer Camp.

Summer Sports Camps – The goal of the camp is to build well-rounded athletes. This camp gives campers the opportunity to play a variety of sports in a fun, safe environment. Campers will receive technical instruction in each sport and then experience the sport in a realistic game situation.

Wet N Wacky Camp – This is a camp for children who want to learn to swim or improve their swimming skills.  Activities include basic swim instruction, stroke development, endurance, water safety, snorkeling and wacky pool games!

After School Care:

The YMCA also provides after school care at the Indian Land YMCA for select elementary schools in the district. Following the school district calendar, the YMCA provides pick-up from the schools and then structured time so your child has a safe, engaging and fun environment to be after the bell rings. The  program is designed to enhance your child’s school support day through activities such as homework support, field trips, large and small group games, devotions and singing.
