The Y is more than a gym. We’re the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening our community, and we're excited to expand into Fenton.

The Gateway Region YMCA is excited to share the GREAT NEWS that the Fenton RiverChase Rec Center is now the "RiverChase YMCA." This went into effect on July 1 after the City of Fenton approved transferring operations of the facility to the Gateway Region YMCA at the Board of Alderman meeting on April 28, 2022.

I am a current RiverChase Recreation Center member. Will my membership change?

The City of Fenton cannot transfer your payment data to the Y.  In order to maintain your current membership rate, and the highest level of security, we need you to visit the RiverChase Y in-person with a photo ID to complete your membership transfer. Come into the RiverChase Y by August 17 so we can complete your payment authorization which will allow you to maintain your current monthly membership rate.

When visiting the RiverChase Y to complete your membership transfer, please ensure you have either your driver's license or a valid form of ID with you.

Can I still buy a Day Pass to visit the RiverChase YMCA or Outdoor Aquatic Center?

Guest Passes to use the new RiverChase YMCA facility will still be available. Rates will be changing, but you can save money by becoming a member. Your membership will pay for itself in 3 visits or less! Come see us!

Use of the Outdoor Aquatic Center is free for YMCA members. Guests who use the Outdoor Aquatic Center must pay daily fees. All guests age 18+ must bring a valid photo I.D.

Do I now have access to all of the Ys in the Gateway Region YMCA association?

As of July 1, you are officially a Gateway Region YMCA member and may visit any of the Ys in our region. With our Join One, Join All memberships, travel around to visit any of our other 23 locations!

Will the programs and classes I attend still be available?
