Guest Passes 

YMCA Members (11 and older) are welcome to bring guests with them to the YMCA Membership Branches in Chippewa Falls, Downtown Eau Claire, & Eau Claire South at no cost to their guest.


Members can bring 2 guests per day, however, each individual guest will be limited to 3 free visits per year. Guests of our YMCA Members will have member privileges for that day, excluding program discounts or fees for activities and events as advertised.


Once the free visit limit has been met, a membership must be obtained, or a day pass must be purchased. There is no limit to day pay purchases. Community events and promotions that allow for free visits will not count towards the limit. 


Day Pass Prices:

  • Individual: $15 per day

  • Family: $25 per day (family must live in same household)

YMCA Members need to be 11 years or older to bring a guest. The YMCA Member must remain on the premises during the guest visit. Guests must have their photo taken and abide by all rules, policies, and procedures.


First-time visitors must complete the Guest Agreement Form and provide a photo ID (18 and older) before entry is allowed. It is required that minors have it filled out by a parent or guardian. To streamline this process, you can print a form at home and bring it to the YMCA Member Service desk.



The YMCA conducts regular sex offender screenings on all members, participants, and guests. If a sex offender match occurs, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel membership, end program participation, and remove visitation access. This information may be shared with other YMCAs.


If you have questions regarding this new member benefit, please contact the Member Service Desk at your YMCA branch.

Insurance-Based Memberships

The YMCA of the Chippewa Valley participates in Silver Sneakers, Silver & Fit, and Renew Active/One Pass.  These are fitness benefits provided by insurers – to know for sure if you receive this benefit, please contact your insurance provider. 

We verify your eligibility and set up your membership at no cost to you.  The YMCA gets paid for your membership based on how often you use the facility, so it is important that you scan your card when you visit any facility.  Only the individual(s) who is covered by the insurance is eligible for this membership. There is no family upgrade option meaning your spouse would also need to be covered by the insurance or they would need to pay for their own adult membership. 


Insurance-Based Memberships are considered full YMCA memberships – you have full facility access and member benefits throughout the entire association (YMCA Sports Center and YMCA Tennis Center may have additional fees for activities but you get the member rate).  However, this membership is not recognized as a nationwide membership and is only recognized at our YMCA association. 


In January of every year, we do “renewals” regardless of when you joined.  We will simply ask if you have had any changes to your insurance.  Those who do not check in with us for the renewal will have their memberships cancelled but you can rejoin at any time with no penalty.  Questions? Contact us for more information.
