YMCA Birthday Party FAQ

What do we do first when we arrive at the YMCA for the party and how early can we come?

You are welcome to arrive 30 minutes prior to your party time to set up any d├ęcor with the assistance of your party host (please nothing that attaches to the building or could cause damage to the paint or mirrors). Upon arrival, parents/guardians of all guests are asked to inform the Front Desk they are here for a birthday party. Guests will be directed to the party room where parents/guardians will sign in their children and provide an emergency contact number. This needs to be completed before parents/guardians leave the Y.

Can we bring our own food for the party? What about delivery?

Party families are welcome to bring in pizza, subs or other birthday treats for the party guests. If you would like to order pizza or subs, you can have it delivered to the Y, and you are responsible to pay and receive the food items from the delivery person in the lobby. The Y staff is not able to order or collect money; this is the responsibility of the party parent/guardian.

We also offer a Party Plus option including 5 large pizzas, a half sheet cake (we offer an assortment of flavors and designs), snacks, juice boxes and water, and all paper goods including table cloths, plates, and napkins for an extra fee.

Should we bring our own towel and suits? What else may we need?

If swimming, guests need to bring their own towel and swimsuit, along with their own gym lock (if desired). Goggles, small pool toys, and flotation vests are permitted; limited amounts are available in Aquatics for your use as well.

Are adults required to be in the pool?

To ensure safety of all, the following adult/child ratios in the pool must be strictly adhered to:
Children 3 & under= 1 adult per 2 children *
Children 4 & 5= 1 adult per 3 children *
Any child using a flotation vest must have an adult within arms reach at all times. Children will need to successfully complete a swim test by a licensed Life Guard prior to admittance to deeper water.
*Adults are required to be physically in the water.

What is included with the birthday party package?

Included is a private birthday party room that you may choose to decorate, 1 hour in either the Gym or the Aquatics Center, and your personal party host. We will set up all tables and chairs for your event, and your host will guide your group during your stay. With Gym parties we do host a variety of different games/activities, such as parachute time, basketball, scooters, dodgeball, duck duck goose, etc. Games may also be set up in Aquatics, time and space permitting.
