It’s never too early to start healthy habits, don’t delay- start today! From fitness classes and family activities to youth sports and childcare, the Y is here for you at all ages. Join our community and discover your Y.
Now is the perfect time to get more connected to fitness, fun, and community! When you join the YWCA, you’re committing to more than simply improving your wellness. You are supporting the values and programs that strengthen our community. At the YWCA we are committed to to nurturing the potential of youth, improving health, supporting our neighbors, empowering women, eliminating racism and promoting peace and justice for all, your membership will not only bring about meaningful change in yourself, but also in your community.
A YWCA Basic Membership includes:
All YWCA facilities are alcohol-, tobacco-, and weapons-free. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult at all times while in the facility.
An individual membership is for the purchaser only and does not allow access for anyone else. It is not transferable even to a member of a family membership type. Violation of this is a theft of service and may result in the membership being forfeited. A YWCA rec pass membership is required for access to the swimming pool, whirlpool, gymnasium, racquetball courts and fitness center. Basic and non members may purchase access to group exercise and water fitness classes. All members must bring their cards and swipe at the turnstile each visit. If you forget your card, a desk worker will allow you access three times within a prescribed amount of time. After the third occurrence, you will need to purchase a new card for $5 to gain access. Tracking member usage is an important evaluation tool for all departments. We need correct usage numbers when applying for grants and reporting on membership utilization. Tracking access is also used for security reasons. This information is only accurate if all members are individually swiping their cards at the gate. Turnstiles are located at the service desk and fitness centers.
Children under 10 years of age not permitted in building without an adult.
The YWCA welcomes individuals and families regardless of age, race, religion, gender, ability or economic level. If you have special requirements and need assistance, please call our Service Desk at 717-334-9171. If a member or guest acts in a manner inconsistent with the YWCA mission, fails to abide by the rules and regulations of the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County or acts in a manner which is harmful, potentially harmful or a threat to the safety of others, membership and/or rec pass privileges may be revoked or suspended at the discretion of the Executive Director or the Board or Directors.
Therefore, the YWCA reserves the right to deny access or membership to any person who:
-is refusing to wear a facial covering, at all times, as mandated by the state of Pennsylvania beginning July 2, 2020.
– is a registered sex offender;
– has pleaded guilty to or been convicted of a crime involving sexual abuse, physical abuse or neglect of a child, spouse or parent;

by an adult aged 18 or older at all times. A complete list of pool rules is available in the pool area. Infants and toddlers MUST wear a swim diaper; diapers can be purchased at the Service Desk. Participants must shower before entering the pool. Users’ good
hygiene is essential to the maintenance and sanitation of the pool. Please use good judgment in choosing your swim wear.
Whirlpool users must be at least 18 years old. Participants must shower before entering the whirlpool. Users’ good hygiene is essential to the maintenance and sanitation of the whirlpool.
The gymnasium is available for member use when there is not a program scheduled. Basketballs are located behind the desk in the fitness center; please return them when you are finished using them. Member children of school age (5+ years) are permitted in the gym without an adult. Children under 5 must be accompanied by an adult age 18 or older. This is not a YWCA supervised program; please use your judgement in allowing your children in this area. Parent or responsible adult must be in the building and the child must know where to locate the adult.
As a non-profit organization, it is the responsibility of both staff and members alike to take care of our equipment. We ask that
you take ownership of your workout space. In other words, if you see someone breaking the rules, bring it to the attention of
a YWCA staff member. We have rules for this facility designed for the safety and comfort of all our members. If we all work together to enforce the rules, the YWCA fitness facility will continue to be the great place that it is! Click for more on Fitness Center rules.
