The Sussex Family YMCA welcomes all Nationwide Y members from Labor Day to May 26th only. The summer months bring a large influx of vacationers, and our small facility simply cannot handle the large volume of people wanting to attend the Y. Additionally, June – August we host summer day camp at our facility and have more than 100 youth on-site during the week. Although we would like to welcome Y members from other areas year-round, we must limit visitors during the summer months to keep everyone safe, while being fair to our paying members and summer campers. We do offer day passes as well as weekly and monthly memberships and we also have summer memberships for those who are staying in our area for an extended time.
December 1st – December 31st
All YMCA of Delaware members who visit a Y of Delaware branch 12 times in the month of December get a FREE BEANIE! Virtual Y users are welcome to participate too! Simply keep a daily log of the virtual Y classes you take and submit at your local branch after the 12th day. Be sure to include the date and class name. It’s our gift to you, our way of saying thank you for another great year!
