Feel Good Friday... Yesterday at the Bear-Glasgow Y, Richard, a Y for All member who is utilizing our harness system to stay active while living with Parkinson's, got the opportunity to dance with his lovely wife Mary for the first time in 10 years.
If anyone is considerin
g using Bear/ Glasgow Y for Summer Camp this year, do it! Last year was the first year for my child and she absolutely loved it! She had a great time on the field trips, outside ...activities , and her ultimate favorite swimming! They keep them busy all day which is great! She also loved all the camp counselors / staff. The camp staff are trained well to handle the children and ensure their safety and well-being. In my opinion, the Y has the best camp in the area!
I'm always at the Y and I love it! But the other day I was with a friend who was picking up her child, and she was having a heat stroke! It was during the heat advisory and they had the kids outside r...unning around in large yellow t-shirts! When my friend went to complain about how her daughter felt , they told her " oh a few kids were a Little dehydrated
! And that they went to a place that didn't have water!" If that was the case, then they shouldn't have gone! And the Y should have kept the kids inside and or provided extra water while the heat wave!!

Both my girls took swim lessons and loved it! The instructor
s were caring, thoughtful , and kind. The branch was clean a welcoming! We will be back for sure!
Love this YMCA! Great classes, staff, positive atmosphere
and always has such a sense of community. I’ve really missed this YMCA since I’ve moved.
Great Gym , But Needs GlycoForce
in the Cooler to replace Glycogen dyring and after workouts ! Water or Gatoraide just don't cut it :)

This summer was the first time I sent my children here to attend the summer camp. I heard nothing but great things about the summer camp and was very pleased with this camp. My children enjoyed swimmi...ng everyday and going on a trip every week. The camp counselors
were awesome!!! ! I will definitely be sending my children back to Camp Cassey next summer and will recommend this camp for those who are searching for a excellent camp!
Only reason I give a 2 instead of 1 is because I've never had an issue with the facility until I signed up for aftercare.
It has been since Aug 10th that we signed up. There was a waiting list at my d...aughters school and by the time school started I needed to find other options. I've attempted to cancel aftercare with the Y, left several messages, emails to Ms Borkoski and still no return calls or email. We have even visited the site twice, was advised by the front desk "no one is available to talk but you can write a letter" which I did on the spot. Still nothing! A bit ridiculous and frustratin g, at the lack of correspond ence.

My family just moved in the area and wanted to see about joining a local gym, but we passed by this YMCA and thought we'd give it a try. We were given a tour by a great employee, Pamela. She was very ...welcoming and informativ
e about everything . After our tour we decided to get a family membership and the same day we returned for a quick workout. Our first visit was great, my daughter enjoyed the kids workout center, I enjoyed a Zumba class and we ended our visit with a nice relaxing swim!
I really like this Y but I can't give it 5 stars because of a few issues which has decreased my enjoyment.
The first is a lack of communicat ion. When classes are cancelled we sometimes get text mess...ages about it but not always. On top of that, when they adjust the calendar, ie: for Spring Break, they don't post the changes on the Facebook page nor on the bulletin board in the locker room. This means you can get already and be in the pool waiting and not understand why your class isn't being held. The other reason is that the classrooms are too small for their classes. Their Zumba classes are held in a room with no limit to how many people can attend. Most of the time there is not enough room to fully participat e in the class. Instead of going full out one has to work around not hitting other people or being hit.
Only gym in Delaware I found with childcare.
For a family of 3, the price is just right. Other gyms that I have had membership s with, have charged double the amount I pay here. This place is perfect f...or all of our needs and super close and convenient to where I live.

I love the Y! I take my children 4 times a week and they have a great time in the kids zone. It's clean, friendly staff, and nice equipment in the fitness center. However, the membership
is a little p...ricey. I also think it would be nice if they allowed guests to come in at a more reasonable price, but overall I'm satisfied.

Love coming here and my son loves it too! Only reason I'm not giving 4 stars is because of the "new year new me" people that take up spots in the daycare and child classes causing my son to have to wa...it 20 minutes for the room which makes me wait for my workouts..
..been going since I moved to Delaware 2-1/ 2 years ago so it just sucks having "temporary" members taking up the spots of regulars.. ..dayscare staff know my son by name which shows he's a regular. Other than that the stuff and facility are top tier!
My family and I have been part of the YMCA for 4 years now! We absolutely
love it! There are so many things you can do as a family and by yourself. The staff is extremely nice, people who work out the...re are very friendly too. The ymca has become a second family to us, we have met people who are part of our family now �
Safe, all purpose family fit and fun! Highly recommende
Love this place... catch me there every week, gym, pool, courts or on the heavy bag
ow YMCA has programs which addresses the needs of the young and "old." Programs span 7 days, days when people are working and when they are free from work. There are always some kind o...f challenges to help you push yourself to do your best. I love this Y but would really like one closer to home MIDDLETOWN .
I had a great experience
. My daughter and I went with our guest passes. We took a zumba class and worked our butts off lol. She took a yoga class as well and I went to the threadmill and stationary... bike. I look forward to going back and signing up for a membership . The staff were very informativ e and helpful.
