One rate does not fit all, so we offer MEMBERSHIP FOR ALL. The heart of the Y’s mission is to serve all people in our community. Thanks to donations (provided by Y members, staff, local families, and businesses) – to the Y’s annual Strong Kids Campaign & the Oshkosh Area United Way – we can offer membership on a sliding fee scale. MEMBERSHIP FOR All gives kids, families, and adults the opportunity to pay the monthly membership fee that best aligns to their household income.

Locker/Laundry Service: Laundry and permanent kit locker service are available at both Oshkosh Y locations for $10 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 (who must be over 18 years of age) 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.
