Community is Power

At The Y, we are for EVERYONE!
For over 60 years, Down East Family YMCA has served as Hancock County’s largest hometown YMCA. Based in Ellsworth, with locations In Bucksport, Blue Hill and Ellsworth, summer camps in Bucksport and Eastbrook, and three early learning centers, we improve the lives of newborns to seniors.
