My Y is Now Every Y in South Carolina

Your Y just got a whole lot bigger! We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout our state, at no extra charge. Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at the Y you’re visiting and enjoy free access to all of South Carolina’s 53 Y branches.

Some restrictions and exclusions may apply. Prior to visiting a Y we recommend members contact the Y they wish to visit for more information.

For a complete list of the YMCAs across South Carolina visit here.

You can find more information and details about the program here. Now get out, explore and stay connected to the Y.
