The YMCA Remains Closed until Further Notice


Dear Valued YMCA Member,

We deeply appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate the challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Your Brown County Community YMCA remains committed to:

  • Supporting and strengthening our community
  • Promoting health, wellness and safety
  • Encouraging fellowship within the facility and in our community

Despite our temporary safety closure, your YMCA is still providing services and leadership within our community on multiple levels.  This is extremely critical as we navigate the current challenges we are all facing.  Please feel free to share with others the following services we are currently providing to our community on behalf of your YMCA:

  • Meeting space & leadership for our Community Organizations Active in a Disaster (COAD) task force
  • Managing the Assistance Hotline 812-988-0001
  • Hosting American Red Cross blood drives
  • Delivering food to those who cannot leave their homes
  • Transporting Brown County citizens via Access Brown County for medical and non-medical needs
  • Monitoring neighbors at Willow Manor and Hawthorne Hills so food and well-being needs are met

We are a charitable organization that provides services for individuals and families from all walks of life and income levels.  We rely on the support of the community in order to provide not only a facility and programming, but also to provide services during unprecedented times such as the present.  We cannot do this alone, so we are asking that you stay with us and maintain your membership.  We ask you to do this just as you would support your favorite non-profit or charitable organization.  It is important to us that we offer you options when considering your membership with us.  Beginning with the April 10 membership draft, you have the following options:

  1. Maintain your active membership as it stands now. This will allow us to continue with the services we are providing and will also ensure a fully operational YMCA once the COVID-19 virus subsides.  Should you choose to remain active, please know how deeply grateful we are for your generosity and the confidence you are placing in us.  No further action is required.
  2. We can place your membership on hold and when the YMCA reopens, your membership automatically resumes. No joining fee would be required.  Please contact us at (preferred) or 812.988.9622 to place a hold on your payments.  Please only contact us if you wish to place your membership on hold.  We also ask for your patience as we are addressing a large influx of inquiries with minimal staff on hand.

In order to ensure speedy processing of your request in time for our April membership draft, we appreciate you contacting us by April 3th.  If you run into difficulty after that date, please contact us and we will be happy to work with you to find a solution.

It goes without saying that COVID-19 has created enormous changes for all of us; however, how we respond is within our control.  You play a vital role in helping us deploy services and support our community by continuing your membership.  Together, we will come through this pandemic stronger than ever.  We wish you and your family good health and look forward to seeing you back at the YMCA very soon!

Thank you for being a part of our Y family.

Yours in service,

Kim Robinson. CEO, Brown County Community YMCA

Larry Voris, Board Chair. Brown County Community YMCA

Please take care you yourselves and loved ones.

Everything the Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better.  Learn how your membership can make us better.

The Y is a powerful association of men, women, and children of all ages from all walks of life joined together by a shared passion: to strength the foundations of our community. At the Brown County Community YMCA, we seek to be a positive change in our community. Our Y focuses on three areas: youth development – nurturing the potential of every child and teen, healthy living – improving the nation’s health and well being, and social responsibility – giving back and providing support to our neighbors to help positive changes occur in our community. Together with people like you, we nurture the potential of kids, help people understand and improve their health, and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. So join our cause, and create meaningful change not just for you, but also for your community.


If you are not a member, you may use the facility by paying a daily guest fee:
  • $5 for ages 3 to 18
  • $8 for ages 19 & up
  • $5 for Military with ID

Community Day is the first Saturday of each month. Brown County residents may use the facility for free.

It is the policy of the YMCA that as long as funds are available, no one will be denied membership due to an inability to pay fees. Financial aid is based on need. Ask the Service Desk for more information.

Your Y is Every Y

Traveling, working in another region, exploring… sometimes, it’s just more convenient for members to use a Y in a different location. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the Nation, at no extra cost
