Newport County YMCA offers Adapted Physical Activity programs,
which are designed to give children and adults with all types
of disabilities the opportunities to participate in a wide
variety of recreational and therapeutic activities. The Y
offers an environment that fosters individual growth and success
through programs that develop a healthy spirit, mind and body.
All programs are centered around the Y’s core values
of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility,
while focusing on developing both physical and social skills
that will last a lifetime. We emphasize each person's abilities
and individuality; by offering programs that foster independence
while providing positive recreational and educational experiences.
We can take existing Y programs and adapt them to meet individual’s
needs. We can help you select programs that are right for
you and your family. Stop be the Newport County YMCA any time
