We’re Opening our Doors FREE to Teens This Summer!

According to the 2018 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, only 35% of 5- to 17- year-olds are reaching their recommended physical activity levels. Canada’s children were given a letter grade of a “D-plus” in physical activity. The Report Card also indicates that physical activity in childhood is essential for a healthy brain.

YMCA of Exploits Valley is taking action by offering a FREE YMCA Teen Summer Membership for teens 13-15 years old!

YMCA of Exploits Valley encourages youth to get active and meet new friends in a safe and welcoming community this summer. The YMCA Teen Summer Membership is available for teens ages 13-15 from July 1-August 31, 2019, during the hours of 2pm-5pm.


Teens will have access to YMCA facilities and can:

  • go swimming
  • work out in the gym and cross training room*
  • be with their friends in a safe and welcoming space
  • enjoy all the benefits of YMCA membership – at no cost!

 *Teens 13 and older must take a strength training orientation before entering the fitness floor. Please sign up at the Membership Services Desk to the first available course. Parents must register their teens.

Drop by the Exploits Valley YMCA with a parent or guardian to sign up. Don’t forget to bring photo ID!
