Ward Downtown YMCA

About Us

At the Ward Downtown YMCA, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage communities in our three areas of focus:

     Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.

     Healthy Living: Improving the nation's health and well-being.

     Social Responsibility: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.

The Ward Downtown YMCA is for everyone. Our programs, services, and initiatives enable kids to realize their potential, prepare teens for college, offer ways for families to have fun together, prepare people for employment, welcome & embrace newcomers, help foster a nationwide service ethic, and empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind, & body.

And that's just the beginning.

The Ward Downtown YMCA of the Ozarks Regional YMCA is a not-for-profit organization that believes no one should be denied access to membership and/or programs due to the inability to pay. These funds are subsidized through the United Way of the Ozarks and through the Y Annual Campaign.



There are currently no coupons available.

Nationwide Membership
Nationwide Membership

We are proud to offer our members access to YMCA facilities across the United States that participate in Nationwide Membership. This way, our members can use the Y as often as they like, making it easier to achieve their health and wellness goals.

Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA (your home Y is the local association that enrolled you as a member and collects your membership dues). We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our mission to strengthen communities.
