Plan a birthday party sure to include tons of engaging activities, a safe space for kids to be active and extra help if you want it—all at the Y.

Plan your party

Contact your local Y

Due to capacity restrictions per COVID guidance from government and health departments, we are not booking birthday party events at this time. The health and safety of youth and families is our priority. We will continue to evaluate safety guidelines, and are hopeful birthday parties will be available again soon at our Y locations. Please check back as we will continue to provide updates on this page as circumstances change.

YMCA birthday parties

All parties include a party room with tables and chairs, and a YMCA host. Parents can bring in their own cake, food and goodie bags.

The Y offers a variety of party packages, from pool parties to bounce houses. Check with your local Y for available options.

All party packages have a 15 guest maximum, parties with 16 – 30 guests will be charged an additional fee.

Come prepared

Feel free to bring your own cake, goodie bags and decorations—all are allowed in your private party room. If you do choose to decorate, you’ll be responsible for putting them up and taking them down.

For parties that include time in the pool:

  • Bring a lock for placing belongings / change of clothes in lockers
  • Before entering the pool, children will need to pass a three- to five-minute swim test, or be within arm’s reach of a supervising adult while in the pool
  • Regular diapers may not be worn in the pool—swim diaper and plastic pants are required for children who aren’t potty trained
  • Additional requirements may apply, based on the pool features at your selected YMCA
