MDI YMCA Update
Following the State of Maine's phased approach to reopening, the MDI YMCA will be opening its doors to Y Members ONLY on Monday, June 15, 2020. The MDI YMCA is engaging in its own phased reopening plan, so some areas of the Y will be closed to foot traffic or open to a limited amount of people.
Please refer to our Reopening Guidelines to see how we will be operating in the coming weeks.
We understand this will continue to cause disruption to memberships and programs. Please read our Letter to the Membership from the Executive Director, Tommy Parham, regarding membership fees. Please see below for our virtual classes.
Please find here a letter from Kevin Washington, President of Y-USA, which he sent to all CEOs of YMCAs.
Important Information for Out of State Visitors
Following the State of Maine's guidelines, the MDI YMCA is requiring that any summer residents coming from out of state please follow the State of Maine's 14-day quarantine before coming to the YMCA. If you plan to stay in Maine past 14 days (as a tourist or summer resident), you may purchase a MDI YMCA membership. We offer 1 and 3 month temporary memberships for our summer residents and visitors.
If you are from the states of New York, New Jersey, Vermont, New Hampshire, or Connecticut the MDI YMCA is still requiring that you complete a 14-day quarantine. If you have any questions regarding this desicion please contact Bob Huff, Membership Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
