Welcoming Week: September 14 – 23, 2018

We believe our community is stronger when everyone feels welcome and we work together for the common good.

Welcoming Week is a chance for neighbors – both immigrants and U.S.-born residents – to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community. We are proud to be participating in this nationwide initiative, dedicated to strengthening communities across the United States!

Welcoming Week is September 14 – 23, 2018! There are tons of activities happening in the F-M area to celebrate – check out everything that’s on the calendar at welcomingfm.org

Here is what’s happening at our YMCA:
  • FREE YMCA Guest Pass  |  September 14 – 23  Gain FREE access into both Fercho and Schlossman YMCAs during Welcoming Week – just mention “Welcoming Week” when you check in at either Member Services Desk! We’d love to have you join us for a workout or come play with us in our Aquatic Center, Play Loft, Kids’ Gym, Climbing Wall, and more! Each family is able to use one free pass – check out our schedules online to see when our activity areas are open! ymcacassclay.org/schedules
  • Climbing Wall Party  |  September 18, 4 – 7pm  |  Schlossman YMCA  Come and reach new heights at our indoor 32 foot climbing wall! All are welcome! Ages 3 and up as long as you fit safely in a harness! Harnesses are provided, so come experience a new way to exercise and meet Wiljar Ojuro, Ms. North Dakota United States.  A waiver will need to be signed for all participants at the Member Services Desk (4243 19th Avenue S) before entering the Climbing Wall.  Wear pants or longer shorts, athletic shoes if you don’t want to wear climbing shoes, and come have fun! 
  • Pool Party  |  September 22, 5 – 7pm  |  Fercho YMCA All three pools in our Aquatic Center (400 1st Ave. S) will be available for open swimming! Our Zero-Depth Pool features a warm water pool with play features and a small slide ideal for families with small kids.  The small pool ranges from 4 to 5 feet deep and is also a warm water pool. Our large pool will be available for both lap swim and open swim, including the use of a rock wall in the pool.  Feel free to bring your own pool toys if you would like! Swimsuits are required, but YMCA lifejackets are available at the pool for anyone to use while they are at our facility.
