The Away Program
Always Welcome at YMCAs
As a Y member, you may want to use a Y in another city or on a short-term basis. Make sure you take your Y card with you when you travel! Please contact the Y you wish to visit for their specific rules regarding visiting members- or AWAY members (Always Welcome At YMCAs). Each Y has a different policy regarding number of visits allowed or fees charged.
When visiting the West Cook YMCA, AWAY members are granted 12 visits per year to our facility. Members from other Y’s who wish to register for programs at the West Cook YMCA will receive the member rate but must sign-up during Open Registration sign-up.
Because AWAY members are considered guests, they are not allowed to bring guests other guests with them. When the maximum number of visits has been reached, a guest fee will be charged. These guest fees are $11.00 for adults 18+ and $6.00 for youth 6 – 17 years.
Contact our Member Engagement Desk at 708-383-5200 for more information regarding our AWAY policy.
