Forest Lake YMCA

YMCA Header

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, open resident hours for the gymnasium and room rentals are temporarily suspended. Programs and services will continually be added as it is safe to do so and this page will be updated as those changes occur.

Forest Lake Resident Passes

Forest Lake residents will receive 6 resident passes per household each calendar year.  Passes will provide the same access to the YMCA facility that members enjoy; however, participation in fee based classes will be at the non-member rate.  The passes will cover all members of the family in the household.  As with members, some age-related restrictions apply to certain activities. 

Visit the website or call the Y for details. To sign up for the 6 yearly guest passes, stop at the Member Service desk and complete a resident application.  Photo ID and proof of residency will be required for everyone 16 years of age and older.  Passes are tracked electronically and are not transferable. 

Please visit before visiting, to familiarize yourself with schedules and safety guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
