Inclusion & Adaptive

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

The La Crosse Area Family YMCA’s mission is putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for ALL. We believe everyone regardless of ability level has the right to enjoy recreational opportunities and that is why Inclusion and Adaptive programs exist here at the Y. Every individual deserves the opportunity to grow and thrive. We are driven to provide that opportunity for children and adults with disabilities. Qualified volunteers and staff are trained to support and encourage each participant in these adaptive programs. We focus on participant’s needs, and adapting the activities to ensure that everyone feels included!
