Our Ys are open with temporarily reduced hours to members and program participants. Guests are welcome beginning Oct 1. Please check our reopening guide for policies before you arrive.

The Arapahoe Y pool will be closed for bubble installation, Sept 26 (at noon)-Oct 4.



The Y has been running childcare and camp continuously through spring and summer, and we’ve learned a thing or two about running programs for kids during this challenging time. Our staff work closely with public health experts to develop practices that minimize risk and maximize fun.

The YMCA of Northern Colorado will follow all safety expectations that align with each school district, local and state health departments and the CDC to ensure that safety is paramount at all of our sites.

Guidance and regulations change often based on CDC and CDPHE requirements so please check back regularly.

  • All parents must wear masks during drop-off and pick-up.
  • Parents will have very limited access to the building and will not be permitted to go beyond the check in/out table. Well-checks, temperature checks and COVID waiver signatures are all required at drop off.
  • We will follow CDPHE’s temperature threshold of 100.4 in all of our school districts. If a child has a temperature, they may return after they have been fever-free for 24 hours without medication.
  • All children are required to wear a mask and bring one extra mask in a sealed bag labeled with their name.
  • Staff members are required to wear masks.
  • Our staff members are frequently cleaning and disinfecting all spaces and objects that are used during programs.
  • We will be on heightened alert for symptoms and enacting a more stringent sick policy to avoid having sick children or children with potential contagious symptoms in the program.
  • Increased frequency of handwashing for staff and children throughout the day.
