Why the Y?


The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities.


Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good. Your membership allows you access to both Door County Y locations as well as access to Ys around the country that participate in Nationwide Membership! 


Assistance is available through our Membership For All Assistance Program.
