Grayslake YMCA Closed September 1, 2012


The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago continually assesses our facilities and programs to determine the best and most effective ways to positively impact our communities. The Grayslake YMCA currently operates out of a rented, storefront space. This presents several challenges, including the inability to expand in order to provide a pool or additional programming to support our mission. This is not the experience we wish to provide for our members.

To that effect, the Grayslake YMCA has closed on September 1, 2012.

Membership Transfer Information

It is our goal to make this process as smooth as possible for members. For members who choose to stay at Grayslake YMCA until the facility closes we will automatically transfer your membership to a neighboring YMCA on September 1, and your first two months there will be free. 

If, on your own, you choose to transfer your membership to another YMCA within our association prior to the closing, you will receive your first month there free. If you do not wish to continue your membership with the Y of Metro Chicago, you will of course be able to cancel without penalty by visiting the Grayslake YMCA membership desk or by calling 847.548.8300.

Our members are very important to us. We regret any inconvenience and hope you will choose to continue your Y of Metro Chicago membership at one of our other facilities in the area. Please do not hesitate to contact Annette Tarchala or Angie Flesch with any questions or concerns.
