About The Atherton YMCA

Atherton is an inclusive organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.

Our origins date back to 1908 when the building was built to facilitate student conferences on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus. In 1932, the Charles H. Atherton House was donated to the YMCA to be used as a resident facility for University students.

Frosh Camp

Ease into college and spend the weekend before classes start on the North Shore of Oahu at YMCA Camp Erdman. Sitting between the ocean and mountain, you’ll get a taste of what Oahu has to offer. You’ll meet others from all walks of life which often turn into lasting friendships. The weekend includes lots of food, hiking, the beach, games, culture, tips from 2nd & 3rd years, and everything camp has to offer (archery, ropes course, and more). Join us for an experience you’ll remember forever!

Facility Update

May 1, 2017: The Atherton Y property has been sold to the University of Hawaii Foundation. Please see the announcement here. The Foundation plans to spend up to $5,000,000 on renovations and upgrades and in partnership with University of Hawaii and the YMCA Atherton will be provided space within the Queen Lili’uokalani Center for Student Services building on the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (“UH”) campus to allow the YMCA the ability to continue its presence in the community. The date for the start of the University of Hawaii Foundation renovation to the Atherton property and the Atherton Y's move to the University of Hawaii campus is estimated to be in August of 2019.

In the interim, all Atherton Y student programs, with the exception of student residence services, will continue at the Atherton property site until further notice.
