We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our mission to strengthen communities. 

• Visitors must use their home YMCA at least 50% of the time. Nationwide Membership is based on individual usage not the family unit.
• Members must sign a universal liability waiver and privacy policy. Nationwide members will be required to show a valid Y membership card.
• Program-only participants are not eligible.
• Silver Sneakers and other insurance paid memberships do not qualify.
• Registered sex offenders may not participate.

Other restrictions apply.  For more information, download the Know Before you Go resource or visit .


Share the Y with Your Family

Every Y member receives a free guest pass each year.  Please share these passes with your friends and family who are interested in using the YMCA.  Although we encourage you to join your guests while they visit, it is not required.  Guests may visit our facility a maximum of three times per year before they must purchase a membership or day pass.

Are you expecting family from out of town?  The Y is a great place for families to spend time together.  If you're a member, your grandchildren visiting from outside our service area (Livingston, Daviess, Grundy, Linn, Chariton, Carroll, and Caldwell Counties)  may come to the Y with you for free.  Your adult family members from out of the area are just $2.  Family members who live nearby or who wish to visit the Y on their own will need to purchase a day pass at the regular rate of $10 for adults, $5 for children, or $15 for families.
