AWAY Program

The YMCA of Honolulu participates in the nation-wide AWAY program, allowing out-of-state YMCA members 14 visits per year. (Always Welcome at YMCAs).  More than 2,000 YMCAs across the country and around the world will welcome you into their facilities as a YMCA member with your membership card. Some fees may apply at some locations. To locate a YMCA anywhere in the United States, call 1-888-333-9622, or check the YMCA of the USA web site.

We do offer the AWAY Pass to current members of YMCA's outside of the United States. For verification-sake, please bring your current YMCA membership card, a valid photo ID, and a confirmation letter (on your home branch YMCA's letter head; signed by the Membership Director or designate) stating that you are a current member in good standing.

Child Supervision

Children under age 13 must be supervised by an adult in all areas of the facility, or they must be enrolled in a supervised program activity. For their safety, children are not permitted in some areas of the fitness facility. Check with the Welcome Center at each branch for details.

Child Watch

Some of the YMCA branches provide free child watch for members during specified hours. Hours and rates for non-members differ at each facility. Contact your YMCA branch for hours and rates.
