The many and varied programs and services offered by the Wyckoff Y will keep the entire family busy from dawn to dusk.

Adults & Active Older Adults

Become Inspired and Inspire Others.

Active Older Adults (AOA’s) aged 62+ are a vibrant, vital part of our community. The core of our AOA program is connection – with our staff, volunteers, members, and through multi-generational opportunities which occur on a daily basis. Be fearless and step out of your comfort zone – there is a wonderful world of adventure, affinity, health, and wellness awaiting you at the Y!

Open Monday – Friday, 9am-4pm
