The YMCA camp is not for young children (5 - 8). I sent my son and after a month or so he begged me not to take him back. The holding area of the gym is loud, noisy, and either due to age or ill-maintenace does not seem clean. I would not recommend the Decatur YMCA camp for young children or for teenagers (read-on). For example, he came home one day and was in tears because he could not get the top off of his thermos and he did not have anything to drink all day! He asked for help and no one came to his rescue.
Also, I use the FitLynx equipment which I love. But I do not think the Y cleans them on a regular basis. I can see dust adding up in the intracacies of the machine. They do provide cleaning supplies for cleaning the machines prior and after use. This was after I specificaly asked how often they cleaned the machines.
Also, When I use the showers on a regular basis, I get planter's warts. This has happened many times over the years.
Also, I sent a teenage international guest to "teen" camp for a week of horseback riding, rafting, etc. After we paid the fee, we were told the activities were extra. I complained and was told there was an error in the publication. She refused to complete the week of camp, due to the extra fees. I have also witnessed/heard a caregiver slapping a child. One does not forget the sound that an open palm makes on bare skin. The Decaur YMCA needs an overhaul.

The Decatur YMCA is for children and their parents. Don't go there unless you want to become ill. The aerobics room is a breeding ground for viruses. There is little to no ventilation so when the room is full (and it's a small room) the air becomes vile with viruses and carbon dioxide. The machines are stacked so close you have about 5 inches maybe, between them and there is always a waiting line starting at about 4:30pm so unless you go early in the morning you can never get on the machines. Why waste good money?

This YMCA is crowded from 3:30pm to as late as 7pm with kids, parents, children's activities so much so that you cannot walk through the hall to the dressing rooms. Also, the adult dressing room for women has kids, toddlers and babies. That is not monitored by the staff. They have a separate dressing room for children.

After being told to leave the indoor track for children's activities the other day I am leaving the Y. It's not for adults. It's for kids.

I think the aerobics room is a health hazard. Anyone with any lung condition should avoid it like the plague.

I am going to an adult gym, no children.

By the way, I give this a NO STAR. The web site won't let me send this unless I give it 4 stars, minimum. LOL!

This Ymca has everything for kids to adults and teens. There's always something to do here. And the people that work here are also very nice also. They make sure that you;re never bored and it's free.
