The Clark Memorial YMCA facilities may be rented for parties on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Parties must be booked a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the date requested. Facility rentals require the person reserving to visit the Clark Memorial YMCA to complete the contract and pay in full. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold dates or reserve parties over the phone or online.
All pool parties include 1 hour in the pool, 45 minutes in the lounge, and 1 lifeguard, which accommodates up to 20 people in the pool. The cost is $100. If an additional lifeguard is needed due to more than 20 participants, the cost is $25 extra.
