Try Something New at the Outdoor Center!


The MetroWest YMCA is a cause-driven charitable organization dedicated to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.  For over 50 years, we have helped members improve their health while building a stronger sense of community.

Our Outdoor Center in Hopkinton offers year-round fun for the whole family. The property, located on 122 acres in east Hopkinton next to the Ashland Reservoir, has hiking trails, an outdoor pool, a 50-foot indoor rock climbing wall, low and high ropes courses, a teaching kitchen, an archery shoot, geocaching, soccer fields, tennis courts, and a cricket pitch!  In the summer, we host an award-winning summer camp for youth ages 3-16.



Seasonal Classes and Programs

We offer seasonal program sessions throughout the spring, fall, and winter. You can learn how to cook healthy foods, safely explore and appreciate nature, perfect your archery skills, and so much more!
