One rate does not fit all, so we offer FOR ALL PROGRAM. Membership for All helps to ensure that all kids, families and adults belong at the Y, regardless of income level.  Thanks to a variety of contributions to the Y's Annual Campaign, if you cannot afford the full cost of a membership, you may apply for financial assistance.  Assistance is based on a sliding fee scale.  All Y members receive the same benefits, regardless of financial assistance. 


Locker/Laundry Service: Laundry and permanent kit locker service are available at both Oshkosh Y locations for $12 per month/per adult/per location. Daily laundering of workout clothes is included in this fee.

Nanny Policy: The Oshkosh YMCA offers a Nanny Pass for members who have a full-time nanny who cares for their children. The member must sign up for the pass, which allows the nanny age 16+ to accompany children to the Y in absence of their parents. The pass does not add the nanny to the family membership, nor does it allow the nanny to participate in Y activities. Families wishing to have the nanny participate in Y activities are invited to purchase a membership for them.
