    Operating in downtown Towson since 1947, the Towson Family YMCA is the largest and busiest branch is our association.  The Y brings all members of the community together-from affluent young professionals to working class families, and older adults on a fixed income.  Recognized as a leader in family recreation, the Y opened a Family Fun Center in 1996, creating a place where parents with young children can discover the joys of healthy exercise together.  The Y is strong on aquatics, health enhancement and a range of sports and recreational activities for all ages. 

Discovery Program (ages 9-60 years):

   
The YMCA Discovery Program is a program for youth and adults with special needs. The emphasis of the program, under the experienced direction of Kevin and Bonnie Moran and with the assistance of many program volunteers, is the development of social skills, self-image, motor skills, and physical education.  Activities include arts and crafts, field trips, swimming, other forms of exercise, and much more.
