Guest Passes

The YMCA provides free guest passes as a benefit to our members. Y members may have as many guest passes as they request. However, each individual guest is limited to 3 visits per year. All guests must present a valid ID and sign a facility waiver. An adult must accompany all underage guests into the facility and remain in the facility for the duration of their visit. Access to towels, ChildWatch and KidZone follow the membership that is providing the guest pass. 

Day Passes

Community members and guests may use YMCA facilities with a day pass. As a visitor to the YMCA of the Blue Water Area, you may use a day pass up to three times within a calendar year. After that, use of the Y is available by signing up for a program or purchasing a membership. All guests must present a valid ID and sign a facility waiver. $10 per person Contact the Y for family pricing

Short-Term Membership

Sometimes people are in our area on business or visiting friends and family for a short time. We offer short-term memberships as a convenience on a week-to-week or month-to-month basis. Due to increased accounting costs, short term membership fees are higher than quoted membership rates. Please see the Welcome Center for details.

The YMCA of the Blue Water Area, along with YMCAs throughout the country, offers free memberships to the families of military personnel who have been called to active duty.

The commitment and sacrifice you make for our country is why we are proud to serve you! For more information stop by the Y, send us an email, or visit the Military Outreach information site.

Financial Assistance - Everyone is Welcome at the Y

The Y believes that everyone deserves the chance to succeed. Regardless of your financial situation, we will work with you to receive all the benefits of our membership. Through the generosity of donors through the Open Arms Campaign, we are able to provide programs and services to those who may not otherwise be able to participate. If you cannot afford the full cost of a YMCA membership, you may apply for financial assistance. All Y members receive the same membership benefits, regardless of assistance.

Open Arms program approval is based on a sliding fee scale designed to fit individual financial situations. Available funding is based on personal need, enrollment, and our financial resources. Applications for both program and membership scholarships are available at the Welcome Center or using the link below. You will need proof of your total household income.
