2022 Father Daughter Dance: Night Under the Stars

Their first words. Their first steps. Their first break-up. It may sound cliché, but it all goes by so fast. Whether she’s 4 or 40, she’ll always be your little girl and you’ll always be the most important man in her life. We invite dads, grandfathers, uncles and male care-givers to create memories that will last a lifetime for the special girl in his life.

Since our inception, the YMCA of Catawba Valley has been guided by its Christian mission and values to strengthen the foundations of our community and nurture the potential of those men, women and children who make up the diverse and culture rich environment our wonderful community is built upon. As a leading nonprofit dedicated to meeting community needs, we engage people across several counties, giving more than 200,000 of our neighbors and children the chance to learn, grow and thrive in a welcoming atmosphere.

The Y offers more than just fitness programs, a fitness center, or a pool. It offers fitness for all ages and financial assistance for fitness programs. The beauty of the Y is that it offers opportunities for all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. The fitness programs we offer start as young as 10 years old and go all the way through senior programs. We encourage families to come together and workout together so habits can be formed at a young age. From the pool, to the fitness center, to the group classes, it is great to see so many different ages, abilities, and backgrounds represented at the Y. We truly are an organization that serves the community from cradle to grave.



"To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all."
