REOPENING WITH CARE

We are thrilled to be reopening all three of the Kettle Moraine YMCA Branches on Tuesday, May 26 with regular business hours! As we prepare to welcome you back in a phased approach, please be assured that the health and safety of our Y members, staff, and community is our top priority.


Update Thursday, May 21

We are excited to be opening on Tuesday, May 26th with our phase 1 reopening plans AND are thrilled to let you know that we are working on a strategy to offer group fitness classes at the Y. We understand the importance of maintaining your health-not only physically, but mentally as well and realize that group fitness classes may be a huge part of that. We are working closely with the Washington and Ozaukee Health department on details; thank you so much for your patience. We can’t wait to see you back at the Y.
