The Y - WHERE MEMBERSHIP MEANS MORE. We're here for you, Lets Kick Start your Experience!


 When you became a YMCA member, you joined a community-strengthening organization that welcomes everyone. People typically join for a specific reason but stay at the Y for the sense of belonging and support they receive.

We want your YMCA experience to make you feel CONNECTED. Now that you are part of our Y family, here are a few ways you can make the most of your time with us:

Group Weight Room (Wellness Center) Orientation

In this 30 to 45 minute walk through our wellness center weight room, you will be given an overview of the weight room, including the cardio and strength machines, and be introduced to basic strength training principles. For new & current members.

Facility Tour

In this 15 minute tour, you’ll get introduced to the Whatcom Family Y's downtown facility. You’ll walk through the spaces and rooms within the YMCA and learn of the activities and programs available in each. These meetings are by appointment only. Once submitting this form, you will receive an email within 3 business days about setting up a time. Walk-in tours without an appointment are available Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.  For new and prospective members.

Facility Tour

If you're new to the Y, please plan a few extra minutes on your FIRST visit to any of our YMCA facilities to get set up. For the safety of our members and guests and in accordance with our Child Abuse Prevention policy, we require Photo I.D. for all 16 years and older to enter any of our facilities.

Through a variety of classes and programs, we work to give you the tools you need to achieve your goals. Our staff and members are here to support you, and nobody else in town does it quite like the YMCA. We hope you know you are a valued member of our community, and we want to serve you for years to come.

Hope to see you soon at the Y!
