The YMCA is a charitable, volunteer-driven, community-based organization that offers a range of exciting activities designed to bring families together and promote a healthier lifestyle. The Y also gives you the opportunity to give back to your community through coaching, mentoring, or any number of volunteer opportunities.
Your membership to the Danville Family YMCA includes use of the entire facility (fitness center, basketball gym, swimming pool, child watch, and all of the group exercise programs) as well as discounted membership rates for the additional programs we offer (such as: swim lessons, sports programs, after school and summer camp, and facility rentals).
Members are allowed to bring guests. According to our guest policy members are allowed to bring up to two guests at a time. The guest MUST bring a photo ID and each guest is only allowed at the Y once per calendar year.
As a Y member you are automatically enrolled in the Y’s A.W.A.Y program. A.W.A.Y stands for Always Welcome At YMCA’s. If you are outside of the Danville area and wish to visit the area’s local Y, all you have to do is show them your Y membership card and you will be allowed to use the facility.

The Danville Family YMCA is different from other gyms in the area because we focus on more than simply your physical health and look to strengthen your ties to the community.
Through the volunteer opportunities we offer, our programs, and group exercise classes we strive not only to make your experience at the gym a more enjoyable one, but also to introduce you to other like-minded people and form relationships that might carry over outside of the gym.
Plus, having a swimming pool, indoor track, and state of the art fitness center doesn’t hurt.
