Because the YMCA is a local charity, a Y membership is a socially responsible membership as all our revenue is reinvested back into the community.
*National and international access
All YMCA-owned facilities in Canada recognize and honour your YMCA membership. Similarly, Canadian YMCA memberships are generally recognized and accepted by international Associations. There are some exceptions, so be sure to check with the YMCA you want to visit to confirm their policy.
Access between local centres
We are able to offer full reciprocity between the Kelowna Family YMCA and the Downtown YMCA. All members of these facilities will be able to access the other facility at any time.
H2O is owned by the City of Kelowna and only operated by the YMCA of Okanagan so, due to our current operating agreement, we cannot offer full reciprocity at this time. But members at the Family Y and Downtown Y receive 25% off the H2O drop-in rate.
For an additional $13 a month, members can access an adult-only changing space and shower area. Daily lockers (bring-your-own-lock) are available. Please ask us if you would like to rent a locker to keep your items in more permanently.
For $10/month, you can have access to clean shower towels daily.
Okanagan Masters Swim Club Membership (Ages 19+)
For an additional $27/month you may be able to join the Okanagan Masters Swim Club.
OMSC offers training sessions tailored to a variety of abilities ranging from recreational to competitive pool, triathlon and open water swimming. The mission of the Masters Swimming is Fun, Friendship and Fitness for life. If you are 19 years of age or older and can swim a minimum of 100 metres you may be able to join the team. Please note this swim club also requires an annual fee.
Everyone’s health journey is different, and sometimes we’re faced with unexpected changes. At the Y, you can cancel your membership at any time, without paying any extra fees. If you cancel mid-way through your payment cycle, your membership will remain active for the remainder of that cycle (refunds will not be provided for payments that have already been made). Cancellations must be done in person or through email (email@example.com).
If you plan to come back later, please ask us about putting your membership on hold.
