Changes to Open Y Day

Open Y Day is getting a makeover.

It’s going to be bigger, better, and more exciting.

But…it’s also going to be a little less frequent.

Excited YMCA Staff

We started offering free all-day access to our facilities on Open Y Day in September 2010 to engage the community and show people what we have to offer.

After four years of offering the same experience every third Sunday of the month, we’ve decided it’s time for a change.

Starting September 2014, Open Y Day will be Community Wellness Day.

Community Wellness Days will still offer free access to the public. These days will also have free special events, YMCA activities and workshops with community partners. Basically, they will be more exciting, more interesting, and more fun!

These special days will be organized a few times each year. YMCA Calgary locations will host Community Wellness Days on different dates to allow families to attend every event.

The last Open Y Day will occur on June 15, 2014.

Our next Community Wellness Day will take place in September 2014. Check back here, on our YMCA Calgary blog, for more details closer to September.
