Y on the Fly

The YMCA of Greater Dayton's ‘Y ON THE FLY’ program is a mobile YMCA delivering games, activities and healthy snacks to children in underserved neighborhoods during the summer months. 


Safety Around Water

Every year, we provide a week of free water safety and basic swimming lesson skills to kids in our community with our Safety Around Water Week program.



Thanks to the YMCA’s base of contributed support, scholarships are available.  Subject to available resources, no person will be denied membership or program participation due to their inability to pay fees.



The YMCA of Greater Dayton is a not-for-profit, charitable, health and human services organization committed to helping ALL people grow in spirit, mind and body. We offer affordable monthly membership rates for families, adults, young adults and youth.  To view our membership fees, click here and follow the prompts.

Every day, the YMCA of Greater Dayton offers quality, affordable programs and services designed to benefit people of all incomes and backgrounds. The Y uses contributed funds to ensure that those unable to pay the stated amount are able to participate.

Those unable to pay the full fee may receive financial assistance based on their demonstrated ability to pay and the Y’s ability to fund the subsidy.
