With the worst of the storm behind us, all of our First Coast YMCA branches will reopen tomorrow, Thursday, August 31 for regular operating hours.

Because Duval County Schools remain closed Thursday, our before and afterschool programs in Duval County will remain closed. All other programs and activities will proceed as scheduled.



All First Coast YMCA branches will be closed on Wednesday, August 30.

Our plan is to resume operations on Thursday, August 31 as long as we can safely reopen our branches.

All Before and Afterschool programs are canceled until schools reopen and we are allowed to safely operate.

Youth sports and other activities will be determined based on the condition of our branches.



School’s Out Day Camp will be available at the Dupont Y and the YMCA at Wildlight. School’s Out Day Camp is the perfect way for kids ages 5-12 to stay active, engaged and learning while school is out. Please pack a lunch, snack and water bottle for a day of fun!

Camp hours: 7am-3pm
