Mystic Capital Campaign



It was 13 years ago that the facility formerly called the Mystic Community Center came under the leadership of the Ocean Community YMCA. Today membership and enrollment in summer camp and programs at this facility have more than doubled, class offerings are at an all-time high and under the Y leadership the operations have regained a solid financial footing.

In response to an expanded geographical service area, now including New London and Norwich, coupled with growing demand, the time has come to launch the next chapter of this facility!


12,000 square feet of new space will provide all new locker rooms, exercise studios, a teen center, community room and an expanded wellness center. The renovated Y will become fully handicapped accessible with an elevator and will have all modern and efficient HVAC systems. A renovated, expanded and state-of-the-art facility will unify, strengthen and focus our community in four key areas:


  • Youth and teen developmentsecondfloor
  • Water safety
  • Health and Wellness
  • Senior engagement

This project has universal appeal because it impacts everyone in the southeastern Connecticut region. A vibrant Y translates to stronger communities in which to raise families, pursue wellness goals and to grow older with dignity.

Pledges can be paid over 5 years and are fully tax deductible. Naming opportunities are available beginning at $50,000 and include The Teen Center, Community Room and many others.

Gifts of $5,000 and higher will be listed on the Donor Recognition Wall in the Welcome Center lobby of the renovated branch.
