YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee to reopen to all Milwaukee YMCA Members June 1st, 2020

Thank you for your loyalty and support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to announce that we will begin our Refresh Phase 1 opening of our membership branches beginning with our Rite-Hite Family YMCA branch on Monday June 1st, 2020.

Our Downtown YMCA will be opening as soon as possible, that date is currently TBD and is dependent on the City of Milwaukee Ordinance regarding fitness facilities.  Stay tuned to our website and your email for when we can open this facility!

Our Northside YMCA will be temporarily utilized to service multiple needs for the community including: Child Care, Emergency Response Camps, and Day Camps.  With the great need for these services in this area the YMCA will not be open for general fitness use in order to adhere to the guidelines of those other services.  Our Northside members may utilize the Rite-Hite Family YMCA or Downtown YMCA during this period of time or can extend their membership hold.  We look forward to serving that community with its child care needs as more workers are back in the workforce, and look forward to connecting with our members when we can reopen our fitness portion of the facility.

If you are currently on hold, or have your membership out of the Northside branch, we will be reaching out to you early next week about the status of your membership and options for Phase 1 to allow changes prior to your June draft date. Rest assured we will work with you through this transition!

Our primary concern continues to be the health and safety of all our members and staff.  With this in mind we will be following all CDC recommendations and will implement some temporary closures and procedures to be in compliance with these recommendations.
