Information & Rates

The YMCA is here to serve the entire community, and we open our doors to everyone. There are so many faces and stories behind the mission of the YMCA. In fact, people are always sharing their life-changing experiences with us. We know of some people who joined the Y as children and took swim lessons and participated in day camp. As they grew into their teen years, they were active in YMCA leadership programs, and as adults, they served as mentors to local youth. As they married and had children, they found themselves at the Y for family activities and enrolled their own children into swim lessons and day camp. As active older adults, they found fun and fellowship in our senior programs. Some people grow up with the YMCA as a part of their lives, while others find the YMCA later in life. As a matter of fact, our members range from infants to over 100 years old. No matter what age people discover the YMCA, they know they are a part of something special. The YMCA is with you for a lifetime.

The Athens YMCA focuses on family programming. We offer family fitness where 11 to 15 year olds can work out in the fitness center with their mom or dad at any time. Children 13 and up are welcome to try out a group fitness class with a parent. All youth 15 and under must be with an adult at all times.
