Calling all Teen Leaders!

Do you have a teen who wants to impact the community in a positive way? Join the YMCA Teen Leaders program. This club gives teens the opportunity to impact the community through service learning projects, fundraising, volunteering in special events and programs. We also have a little fun too! We take trips to laser tag, the zoo, haunted houses, sky zone, and other trips. The program begins in September so register at the Member Services Desk today!

Outdoor Pool Weather Policy

We try to keep updates posted on the Arthur R. Baxter YMCA Facebook page and here, on our website. However, because weather can change quickly, please make note of our weather policy regarding the outdoor pool.

The Outdoor Pool will remain open during light rain. Once the rain is heavy enough to distort the surface of the water, our lifeguards will close the pool because they can’t see the bottom of the pool.

The Outdoor Pool will CLOSE upon the first sighting of lighting and/or the first sound of thunder. It will reopen 30 minutes AFTER the last sighting of lighting and/or the last clap of thunder.
