Need a workout in without the kids?

Kidzone is a free service for Household members that allows you to check in your children for up to two hours at a time so that you can enjoy all the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA has to offer on your own. This service is also available for Adult members to use at a cost of $3. Please pay at the Member Service Desk and bring your receipt into the Kidzone when checking in.

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.

Children under 5 years old are not required to wear a mask, but they are highly encouraged to do so.

Kidzone hours are:
Monday-Friday 5-7:00pm
