Need a workout in without the kids?

Kidzone is a free service for Household members that allows you to check in your children for two hours at a time so that you can enjoy all the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA has to offer on your own. You must have a Household membership to use the KidZone.

KidZone has a capacity limit of 8 children. When you make a reservation, your reservation will be for the entire 2 hours.

The Kidzone room can be found across from the Member Service Desk in the front lobby. Parents will walk children into the Kidzone and check in at the desk with photo ID. You must also show photo ID at pick up. To utilize the KidZone, members must also have their photo in our system, please check with the Member Service Desk to make sure we have your photo!

For the safety of the children under our care, we ask that the adult who drops the child off must be the one to pick them up and check out with Kidzone staff.

Reservations are required in advance to use the Kidzone. To make a reservation, please use the software below and reserve your child’s spot in the Kidzone under the child’s name. You may make a maximum of 3 reservations per week. Reservations can be made up to 3 days in advance.

Masks for children are not required, but are highly encouraged for children age 2 and older.

Kidzone hours are:

Monday – Thursday

8:30am-10:30am and 5:00pm-7:00pm
