- How do people with walkers or wheelchairs use the water slide?
You may notice that we have an elevator with front and rear doors. There is nothing special about it–it’s just a regular service elevator. What makes it special, though, is that it provides equal access to our water slide. While this may seem like a very practical solution, you will likely be surprised to learn that (to our knowledge) this is the only full-access water slide in the entire United States.
Just as there are many different kinds of people but one YMCA community, there are also many ways for you to participate. Become a member, volunteer your time, support a specific program or donate charitably to the Stephens Family YMCA–and you are joining with us in our commitment to help our families and our community grow strong.
Membership rates, volunteering information, and financial assistance along with contact information for giving, are available in the program guide under “Get Involved at the YMCA.”
Thank you for your interest in the Stephens Family YMCA where our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. In support of our mission, we offer a financial assistance program that lends support to families and individuals with low income and/or extenuating circumstances so they may have the opportunity to participate in membership and programs at the Y.
