Join the Lincoln YMCA

A membership entitles you to access the Youth Activity Center which includes a cardiovascular and weight equipment as well as a full-size gymnasium. Members of the Youth Activity Center will also get reduce program fees for programs such as Before and After School Care and all sports program. Early 2022, we will be adding both private and group swim lessons as well as group fitness classes and personal training.

Current operating hours for the Youth Activity Center are 11:00 am to 07:00 pm Monday through Friday. Our goal is to expand operational hours of the Youth Activity Center as soon as we can add additional staffing.

All memberships and program registrations are now available online or by visiting the Youth Activity Center located at 719 Wyatt Ave in Lincoln, Illinois.

For the safety of our members, individuals must be 13 years old or older to utilize the cardiovascular and weight areas.

A wellness coach will be available during regular business hours to answer questions and provide assistance on how to properly use the equipment.
