Nikki’s Story

Nikki's Family

Nikkis Story - Swim Team

The Y is our family.

I have been a DEF YMCA member since 1995, starting swim lessons with Matt when I was 4. All of my children attend the Y’s early childhood programs at The Moore Center, have been summer campers at Camp Discovery and play Y sports. Not only have my kids met best friends through Y programming, so have I. Through volleyball, zumba and interacting with the amazing staff, The Y has helped us form an extended family.

Through the Covid-19 pandemic and closure, the Y welcomed us back and did everything they could to make sure we are all back and back safely. The sense of community is amazing and the Y has shown tremendous strength through hardship this year.

I am truly proud to be a member of the Down East Family YMCA.
