Try New Things

Y Adventure Lab creates new and original outdoor experiences that instill confidence and build community. From FREE, year-round experiences to our seasonal event portfolio, Y Adventure Lab keeps people active all year.

Activity Agents

Since being founded as CycleHealth in 2013, our goal has always been simple …

Empower kids to be more active outdoors!

As our events and impact grew, we said YES when invited to become part of the YMCA of the North in 2017.

With the strength of the Y behind us, we have realized tremendous growth in participation while bringing fun innovations to the world of outdoor adventure.
