Community is central to the YWCA mission.
Bring about meaningful change in yourself and in your community.
For Our Community
Community is central to our mission at the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County. In addition to being the center for personal and community growth in Adams County, we also offer a variety of special events, fundraisers, and opportunities to rent our facilities for meetings, parties, and more.
Special Events and Fundraisers
In addition to our year-round and seasonal programs, the YWCA staff works hard to organize special events that not only benefit our organization through fundraising, but also give our members the opportunity to:
- Stock up on children’s clothing, toys, and games at great prices for the greater good.
- Challenge their friends to races.
- Learn about the past year’s successes and plans for the upcoming year.
- Enjoy a special evening when the Local Stars come out to dance for the benefit of the YWCA and the Adams County Arts Council.
The YWCA is always looking for new events that are fun, economically feasible, and ideally raise money to support the programs we offer to the community for no charge. If you have ideas or would like to volunteer to organize any of our existing events, please contact us.
Meeting and Party Rooms
Do you have an occasion to celebrate, but need a place to host it? A meeting where you can also benefit from a little basketball or racquetball team building? Check out the YWCA! Our facility has amenities that can help you host the perfect party, reunion, meeting, and more.
YWCA rec pass members receive a 10% discount on rental fees, but you do not need to be a member of the YWCA to rent a meeting or party room. Adams County non-profit organizations also receive a 10% discount on rentals.
$50 for up to 3 hours | $75 for 3+ hours
Our 42’ by 29’ community room can be divided into two separate spaces. Each space seats 25–30 people. As one large room, it accommodates seating for approximately 75. Chairs and tables are provided. Some audio-visual equipment is available, and there is Wi-Fi. You may bring your own food and drinks, excluding alcoholic beverages.
We offer several options for themed parties. These parties include use of the community room for three hours, including one hour of your chosen activity.
The gymnasium, pool, and racquetball courts may also be rented on an hourly basis, separately, or in combination with the community room. If you have questions about how our facility can meet your needs, call us at 717-334-9171 x 120.
