Frequently Asked Questions

When will the Lancaster Family YMCA (LFY) Reopen?

All branches of the Lancaster Family YMCA, as well as Camp Shand and the Lampeter outdoor pool were closed due to the financial uncertainty LFY is facing and the orders issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in light of COVID-19. LFY continues to appeal to the community for support.

Our City Center and Lampeter Strasburg Branches will be reopening for the Wellness Floor on September 14, 2020.  We will be sharing updated information about the phasing in of our programming and safety updates and procedures with all Members as we get closer to reopening date.  Please read the latest letter to our Members here.


Is the Y continuing to charge me for my membership while closed?

All memberships have been placed on hold at no cost.  For our reopening drafts will not be charged for September 2020.  All Members will be notified prior to Membership Fee drafting being placed back on and we will also share more information as to how you can continue to place your membership on hold if you are not yet ready to come back to the YMCA.

Some members indicated that they would like to continue drafting their membership fees in support of LFY and had also made donations on their own. We are incredibly grateful for your generosity.  If you would still like to donate, we ask that you make a donation via our website. Know how much we appreciate your generous support.
