Summer Out Loud With the YMCA of Greater Erie

The Y is ready for a great summer with outdoor classes & flex memberships for the whole family

May 19, 2021

It’s been an incredibly challenging year for all of us, but the YMCA of Greater Erie sees brighter days ahead.

This change of season and the rising percentage of people who are vaccinated makes us all feel like it’s time to feel good again. It’s time to play. It’s time to see friends. It's time to SUMMER OUT LOUD!

The YMCA of Greater Erie is ready to SUMMER OUT LOUD with outdoor classes and fun for the whole family and flexible summer membership options that are a really great deal — just $199 for the whole family to enjoy membership benefits through Sept. 5! As part of a summer membership, your family will have access to all the amenities at the YMCA of Greater Erie's four branches and Camp Sherwin. You'll also get a chance to register early and at a reduced cost for swim lessons, and enjoy free visits all summer long to the Y's SEVEN swimming pools, including the beautiful outdoor pool — complete with a waterslide! — at the Eastside YMCA and the outdoor pool and splash pad at Camp Sherwin.

Swim lessons at the YMCA of Greater Erie are educational and fun!
