The Waldo County YMCA opened its doors to the public in February 2001. The board and staff remain focused on our mission. We strive to make our programs, memberships, services and facility available to everyone; the YMCA never turns people away due to an inability to pay.
In 1998, after years of careful planning, the Waldo County YMCA Board of Directors initiated a capital campaign to raise funds to build the YMCA facility. With generous support from the whole community we raised over $4.7 million. The facility opened in February 2001, housing a full gymnasium, walking track, community rooms, wellness and fitness rooms. The Board of Directors planned the full-facility YMCA in phases, vowing to complete the initial facility (Phase I) without incurring long-term debt. Phase I was financed with short-term debt that was paid in full in January 2004. The Waldo County YMCA celebrated the official opening of the Tom & Sally Savage Pool Complex on Wednesday, June 17, 2009. Community donors and contributors, donating $4.2 million to the pool complex campaign, celebrated with a tour of the natatorium. Come in and visit us today!
