Membership Update for 2019

Dear Valued Member,

During this last year you may have noticed a few changes around your Y. We replaced the carpet in the facility with updated flooring that is easier to clean and maintain for our environment. We added furniture to the lobby to encourage gathering, as well as an automatic door operator for handicap accessibility, and from preschool, to member engagement, and adding wellness staff hours in our fitness center.  It's all been to give our community more of what you want and need.

We hope you will be pleased to know that our plans will not stop with these changes. In a recent board meeting, our volunteer directors voted to make our Y more accessible to every family by introducing 24 hour access to our fitness center. This offering will be made available to all members over the age of 18 years. Now, no matter what your work schedule, or how late you get your kids into bed, the Y will be here to meet your wellness needs. There will be some facility modifications in order to make this possible, as there will be no staff on duty after our regular business hours. In order to take advantage of this new opportunity, you must sign a waiver at the member service desk to gain access to the fitness center using our new access control system. You will also need a valid membership card, and photo in our membership system. This waiver will be available as soon as facility modifications are complete- most likely the first of the 2019 year. We hope you are as excited as we are!

We want to make sure that the YMCA continues to be accessible for all people now and in the future. Therefore we are instituting a $1 increase in our membership dues beginning January 1, 2019.

Effective January 2019, monthly membership fees will be changed as follows:

  • Family Membership $43 per month
  • Adult Membership $35 per month
  • Student Membership $26 per month
  • Senior Family Membership $39 per month
  • Senior Adult Membership $30 per month
  • *No change to Program Membership

We understand that this increase may be a concern, and due to the generosity of our members and donors, financial assistance remains available for those in need.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Washington County Family YMCA. On behalf of all of our staff and volunteer board of directors, we want to wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2019.

With Blessings, 




Putting Christian Principles into practice that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

The Washington County Family YMCA is a volunteer led charitable organization of men, women, and children of all ages, abilities, races and religions. Our mission is to put Christian Principles into practice that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

The Y is a leading voice on health and well being. We bring families closer together, encourage good health, and foster connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, 4,125 people in our community are receiving the support, guidance, and resources they need to achieve greater health in spirit, mind, and body. This is particularly important as our nation struggles with an obesity crisis, families struggle with work/life balance, and individuals search for personal fulfillment. Our programs are accessible, affordable, and open to all faiths, backgrounds, abilities, and income levels. In 2016, the Y served 4,125 people and provided $47,500 in financial assistance to 502 families who otherwise would have faced economic barriers to participation.
