We're open to all YMCA of Greater Des Moines members! Members under 13 years of age are required to have direct supervision by an adult member.
We're following a careful, phased-in approach to reopening, with the safety and well-being of members, staff and the community remaining our top priority. For information on what you can expect at the Y during this initial phase of reopening, click the What to Expect button below.
The Waukee YMCA is a hub for relationships and collaboration within the community.
The Y is not just a top-notch fitness facility. Relationships with individuals, schools, local government, non profits and churches have made the Waukee Family YMCA a thriving community of people committed to strengthening the foundations of community.
“The Y is uniquely positioned in a way that it can partner with a diverse group of organizations, not just in Waukee, but nationally,” said Eric Kress, executive director. “We design our programs and open up the facility to be inclusive and welcoming to the entire community, allowing us to connect with everyone. We like to think that the Y is the glue that brings our community together.”
The Y’s programs such as youth sports, child care, day camp, preschool, aquatics, AOA, and wellness also provide a great opportunity for the community to live healthy, develop potential, and contribute to help one another.
All YMCA branches are closed on Christmas Day and Easter. Holiday hours will be observed New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Check your branch Facebook page or our website homepage for specific holiday facility and programming hours.
