Scarborough YMCA

The YMCA has been supporting young people in Scarborough for many decades.

All YMCAs are locally managed to respond to the needs of the community. In Scarborough we have developed a strong reputation for giving young people a range of opportunities to build their self-confidence, make new friends and improve their ability to work with others, and to give something back to the wider community. We do this by engaging people of all ages in a variety of activities including dance, singing, sport, arts and volunteering, as well as on- and off-stage opportunities in our 290-seat community theatre.

As well as being home to a number of Dance and Performance Schools, we offer meeting rooms, dance studios and a gymnasium for hire. Weightwatchers base one of their weekly sessions at the YMCA. We also offer Ju Jitsu, Fencing and Musical Theatre classes.

We have a very well-equipped 290-seat theatre which plays host to numerous productions each year. Our theatre is also ideal for companies or groups wishing to deliver a seminar, training session or presentation to a large group in comfort.

We are always keen to show people around and find that most are surprised by what we have to offer.
