YMCA Bussing Policy

The Bedell Family YMCA, will be offering transportation from the Spirit Lake and Okoboji Elementary Schools to the YMCA for kids to participate in YMCA activities beginning August 31st. A white YMCA bus will be easily identifiable and will provide service on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. All children must be registered in a YMCA program (Youth Sports, Swim Lessons, Martial Arts, etc.) to ride the bus to the YMCA on their scheduled days. Due to the close proximity of riders while bussing all riders must wear face masks. All children arriving at the YMCA on the bus will need to follow the YMCA Supervision Policy below.

YMCA Supervision Policy

*Face masks will be recommended when in the facility when not involved in aquatics programs or cardiovascular activities. All program participants must have completed facility waivers by a parent or guardian before being allowed to ride the bus. These are available at the YMCA Front Desk.

All program participants 11 years and under may utilize the YMCA Character Center (during hours of operation) prior to or after their supervised YMCA program when riding the bus. While supervision is provided, the YMCA Character Center is not a child care program.

  • Children ages 11 and under must be accompanied by an adult or in a supervised program when visiting the YMCA.
  • All participants 12 years and older are welcome in the YMCA Facility on their own, but must be accompanied by an adult while utilizing the YMCA Wellness Center and Weight Room.
  • Children ages 13 and older may utilize the YMCA Wellness Center and Weight Room on their own.
  • When using the pool, Children 7 and under MUST have a parent/guardian in the pool within arm’s reach at ALL times!
