Nonprofit View: Hill Y waiving joining fee until Sept. 20 – Carroll County Times

The Hill Y in Westminster is located at 1719 Sykesville Road, next to Carroll Community College. Every day, members of the Hill Y are provided opportunities to participate in a wide range of group exercise classes including but not limited to Zumba, pilates, yoga, chair yoga, body pump, body sculpt, core conditioning, cardio dancing, barre, core conditioning, cycle, body combat, and H.I.I.T. (High Intensity Interval Training). These programs and many others are included in a Y membership. Youth and teen programs are also available such as youth sports, toddler play time, rec zone, dodgeball, Teen Quest, kids cardio, volleyball and Stay and Play (a safe, supervised activity area for young children).

A 5,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art fitness center also provides members with a complimentary orientation for an individualized exercise program based on personal goals. Small group training and personal training is also available.

Low-impact water fitness classes and lap swim are offered in a six-lane, 25-yard heated pool which also provides children and adults swim lessons and classes year-round. This summer we added a 4,200-square-foot outdoor splash pad, and offered several free events to the community for healthy safe family fun.

In the community, the Y mission extends to preschool, camp and before- and after-school enrichment programs which help children succeed in school and in life. This includes the Chipmunks preschool, and school-age care at Spring Garden, Cranberry Station, Robert Moton, William Winchester and Runnymede elementary schools.

As a part of the Ys commitment to social responsibility, we also seek to strengthen the communities in which we live through volunteerism including Togetherhood, a Y member-led volunteer program. Togetherhood members are invited to participate in strengthening communities by leading and running convenient, fun and rewarding service projects as part of their Y experience. This hard-working group has collected non-perishable foods for Carroll County Food Sunday, collected and donated slightly used professional clothing for Human Services of Carroll County, and most recently, collected necessary pet items for the Humane Society of Carroll County.

Most importantly, the Y is a mission-based charitable organization which actively raises funds to remove price as a barrier to those who otherwise couldnt afford a Y experience.

We believe that healthy lives begin with healthy communities. We are committed to providing family-oriented, affordable, high-quality programs that lead to deepening the positive values of children and youth, building stronger bonds within the community, and improving the health and well-being of those across Central Maryland.

As a positive way to kick off a healthy school year, the Y is waiving the join fee for all new members until Sept. 20. Please stop by for a tour to learn how the Y can make a difference in your life! If you reside in the Carroll County area, we invite you to visit our Hill Family Y or go on line at to learn more about our cause, building a healthier Carroll Community and a healthier you!
