Benefits & Services

YMCA Members


We strive to keep fees low and value high! When you join the Y, you're joining more than a gym, you're joining a family! See below for details on all the ways the Garden City Family YMCA adds value to your membership.

FREE TRUSTED CHILDCARE: Work out while the YMCA—the largest provider of child care in the country—is providing a safe, fun environment for your children. Your household membership includes two free hours of Child Watch each day while you’re working out. Discounted rates on before and after school child care, as well as all day child care for 4-5 year olds is also available. Check with our family director for more information. "Some kids go to daycare, the lucky ones go to the YMCA!"


FREE CLASSES: to workout beyond the treadmill and weights? Shake up your routine with Zumba®, Yoga, Group Cycling, and more — many different classes are included as part of your monthly membership fee.
