When school is in session, the Y is here for your keiki!

During the school year, our Windward YMCA operates the Department of Education's A+ After School programs at 9 DOE Windward District Elementary Schools. During School Year 2015-2016 & 2016-2017 we were voted "Principals Choice" For After School Child Care. The Y also offers Before School Program for keiki at 2 school sites for parents who need a safe and fun place for keiki to be prior to the start of school.

When school is out, the "Y" is in! We offer Fall, Winter And Spring Day Camp [Intersession] Programs and during the Summer is our Famous "Summer Day Camp" and weekly overnight Camp Erdman programs.


For Healthy Living

COVID-19 Facility Update:

Members may join us at anytime to use our fitness facility areas and use our online reservation system to reserve a spot for lap swim or exercise in our heated pool and  in-person and live stream group exercise classes. Please visit our home page,, to create an account in our reservation system, MotionVibe. Appointments for reservations open at 8am, 2 days prior.


Masks must be worn correctly, covering both the nose and mouth, at all times in the facility, including while exercising. Failure to comply with this government mandate will affect your membership.


We ask that members who are not able to make their reservation, un-register so that the space opens up for another member, as space is very limited at this time.


As of August 2, 2021 Locker rooms are not available.

Childwatch is not open at this time, but will be phased in at a later date. Please come prepared to exercise and bring in only essentials while working out: a fanny pack, water bottle & towel are permitted. All other items must be placed in a locker and members must provide their own lock at this time.

Your safety is of utmost importance. Fully covered athletic shoes & proper athletic attire are required to work out. As we have greatly increased our sanitation protocols, we ask that members also wipe machines before and after use, wash hands frequently and use the hand sanitizer provided around the facility.

While the current situation is less than ideal, we appreciate your understanding and compliance with our current guidelines. We are working hard to keep the facility sanitized, members and staff safe and healthy, and provide a quality fitness experience.

Our Healthy Lifestyles weight & cardio room is equipped with a variety of cardio equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, recumbent and upright bikes & more, each with heart rate monitors and personal LCD touch screen TVs for your entertainment. We've got a wide variety of weight equipment, free weights, cable machines & other equipment to meet your fitness needs.

Looking for a workout specifically tailored towards your fitness & wellness goals? Our nationally certified Personal Trainers will work with you to stay motivated and create a training program to help you reach your goals.

For Social Responsibility

Togetherhood - Activating People for Good: Ulupo Heiau

**COVID Update: Togetherhood events are temporarily suspended due to government orders.**

The Y's Togetherhood program connects people from all backgrounds to plan and carry out volunteer projects that address a real need in their community.


Windward Y's Togetherhood Project is right in our back yard at the Ulupo Heiau. Our most recent work day activated over 80 volunteers to the Heiau and lower Kalo or Lo'i patches, where we cleaned the ‘auwai, pulled invasive weeds, removed rocks, harvested kalo and cleaned up the area. Volunteers included our YMCA members and staff, community members and program participants. Togetherhood is a quarterly event open to all. Please call or stop by the Y to sign up for the next Togetherhood!
