*Due to high demand and limited capacity in our outdoor pools, most of our outdoor pools are reserved for YMCA of the North Shore (YNS) members only. As space allows, limited public access is available as noted above. 

*Outdoor pool access is a benefit of full privilege YMCA of the North Shore memberships and excludes “Local Only” memberships and YMCA Reciprocity visitors. “Local Only” limited access members may upgrade to full YMCA of the North Shore membership to gain access to outdoor pools.

How can my child’s caregiver access the outdoor pool?  Add a Summer Caregiver!
This option is designed for monthly drafting member families who have a summer caregiver (grandparent, nanny, etc.) who will be bringing the kids to the Y; includes outdoor pool access.

If you currently have a 1 Adult Family Membership:

  • Upgrade to a 2 Adult Family membership to add on your caregiver for the summer
  • Request a downgrade back to a 1 Adult Family whenever you’re ready

If you currently have a 2 Adult Family Membership:

  • You’re eligible to add a Summer Caregiver Membership for your child’s caregiver ($25 draft per month, expires August 31, 2021).
