Just for Teens

So much of what we learn has to do with the opportunities we’re given. At the Y, we want young people to explore their possibilities and think big. Whether teens come to the Y looking to explore their interests, or for support in navigating challenges, the Y is committed to nurturing young people and roots for their success.

Teen Memberships start at $14.50 per month! That is about the cost of attending 2 TwYlight Zones, but offers so much more!  With a teen membership, you get access to the basketball gym, health and wellness center, and weight room!* Check out the Teen Activity Schedule to see all that the YMCA has to offer!  The Y also offers Teen Clubs and Tournaments to get teens involved! 

*Teens 11-13 must be accompanied by an adult while using the Health and Wellness Center.  An orientation is highly encouraged before teens use the equipment.
