Birthday Parties

Birthday parties at the YMCA

Build a spectacular celebration by selecting your:

  • Duration—two- and three-hour parties are available
  • Size—parties are priced to include up to 15 children, and can include a maximum of 30 for an additional fee
  • Activity—focus on one activity or combine two—activities can include:
    • Playtime in the gym or pool
    • Specialty activities like bounce houses, cooking, Oula Jr. or Yoga and sports
  • Food—you can choose to bring your own food

What’s included?

There are three main options for birthday parties. All include a party room with tables and chairs, a YMCA host and guest passes:

  • Basic party features time in the gym or pool
  • Supreme party features time in the gym playing sports or games, Zumba party, cooking party in our onsite healthy living kitchen or playing in the bounce house
  • Extravaganza party is a combo party of time spent in the pool and bounce house or time in the bounce house and gym. Midway Y does not provide catering, so please bring any food you wish to have during the party. (*Not all YMCA’s offer Extravaganza parties, please check with Member Services.)

Come prepared

Feel free to bring your own cake, goodie bags and decorations—all are allowed in your private party room. If you do choose to decorate, you’ll be responsible for putting them up and taking them down.

For parties that include time in the pool:

  • Kids should come to the party with their swimsuit on under their clothes
  • Before entering the pool, children will need to pass a three- to five-minute swim test, or be within arm’s reach of a supervising adult while in the pool
  • Regular diapers may not be worn in the pool—swim diaper and plastic pants are required for children who aren’t potty trained
  • Additional requirements may apply
