YMCA OF THE CHESAPEAKE
GUEST POLICIES

Welcome to the YMCA of the Chesapeake. We hope your visit is enjoyable. Please remember that our first priority is to serve our members who have made a commitment to the YMCA by joining. The purpose behind our guest policy is to: enhance member service to our current members who are encouraging a friend to join; and made reasonable accommodations for members of other YMCAs traveling in our area, for out-of-town visitors. All YMCA of the Chesapeake facilities are part of one association; therefore, a visit to one location counts as a visit to all locations.
 
Please note: All facilities can restrict guest usage, hours of usage and area of usage with or without notice to ensure the safety and comfort of our members. We highly encourage members to contact the YMCA prior to visiting with a guest to inquire about any guest restrictions due to demands on the facility.

For the safety and security of our members, program participants and guests:
  • Government photo ID required for members ages 16 and up.
  • Current photo required on file for all users age 2 and up.
  • Federal law prohibits sex offenders from accessing YMCA of the Chesapeake facilities. In compliance with this law and in order to ensure the safety of our children, we regularly compare our membership database to the National Registry of Convicted Sex Offenders and terminate the membership and/or access rights of anyone registered.

  1. Guest MUST be accompanied by member.
