Building What Matters.
The former Lyric Theater has been transformed into the new Kirk Family YMCA, bringing the Y back to the core of downtown Kansas City after 40 years. As part of our first phase of opening, the Kirk Family YMCA is currently open for a summer day camp to support youth downtown and throughout Greater Kansas City. Membership and other programs are planned to begin in late 2021.
