The Door County YMCA is part of over 800 corporate YMCAs nationwide participating in a new membership-reciprocity program that begins this month. CEO and President Tom Beerntsen says the Door County YMCA is a popular destination for outside members.
Beernstsen says the only stipulation is that the visiting member must fill out a liability waiver that is kept on file in the YMCA national database. He estimates that 90 percent of YMCAs nationally are participating. The Door County YMCA currently has a total of over 8,000 members at the Sturgeon Bay and Fish Creek program centers.
