Questions about Rentals?

What if I only booked for 30 guests but realize I’m going to have more?2023-11-03T17:21:35-02:30

We require a minimum notice of ONE WEEK in order to guarantee a second lifeguard for your rental.

Can I bring food onto the pool deck?2023-11-03T17:21:04-02:30

No food or beverages are permitted on the pool deck. However if you have loot bags you wish to pass out as guests leave, they are permitted to be stored in the viewing area or at the Front Desk.

Is there a limit to how many people can come?2023-11-03T17:20:37-02:30

Pool rentals are limited based on the number of lifeguards you reserve/pay for – each lifeguard can only be responsible for a maximum of 30 people. The gymnasium does not have a limit.

Why do I need to provide a guest list?2023-11-03T17:20:10-02:30

In an effort to improve the safety of all patrons, we need to account for all adults and children in the building in accordance with the YMCA’s Child Protection Policy. The guest list being provided in advance makes sign in for your event run more quickly and smoothly.

Can I get my deposit back?2023-11-03T17:19:39-02:30

The 50% deposit is non-refundable. If you are unable to keep your booking, the deposit can be put towards re-booking a new date. The only instance where would refund a deposit would be situations outside the YMCA’s control (examples: facility closure due to inclement weather, pool fouling, etc.).

Can I book a rental over the phone or online?2023-11-03T17:18:54-02:30

Currently, we are only set up to book rentals in person. However we are aiming to make rentals available to book online in the new year, so that our bookings are more accessible to those living out of town.
