We offer classes for many abilities and interests. Also, for our active older adults, we have indoor walking during the week.

Members also receive reduced fees on all YMCA programs and other activities.

Our purpose is to serve the Custer area through programs that provide a positive, safe and supported environment and through the develpment of the basic core values of Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Caring. The mission of the Custer Family YMCA is "To put Chrisitian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all".

Membership in the Y is a special thing. Be a part of  a leading nonprofit organization for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. When you join the Y you belong to a place where:

  • Parents find a safe, positive environment for children to learn good values, social skills and behaviors.
  • Families come together to have fun and spend quality time with each other.
  • Children and teens play, learn who they are and what they can achieve.
  • Adults connect with friends, pursue interests and learn how to live healthier.
  • Communities thrive because neighbors support each other and give back.
  • We all build relationships that further our sense of belonging and purpose.


We believe everyone deserves a Y, so the Custer YMCA offers financial assistance to individuals and families who might otherwise not be able to afford membership or program fees. Ask a staff member about financial assistance. It’s easy to apply and the Y does everything it can to make the Y a place for all.

Join the Custer Y and become part of a community committed to helping you and your kids learn, grow and thrive. Y members receive full access to the facility’s Wellness Center, Gym and Locker Rooms; priority registration for classes and programs; free fitness classes; discounts on classes and programs with a fee; and four guest passes each year to share with friends and four guest passes per month to the Rapid City YMCA. The option for a Joint Rapid City / Custer membership allows you to use  both the Rapid City and the Custer YMCAs each of which offers quality facilities, programs and swimming pools.

You may know the Y for our pools, classes, gyms, basketball courts or summer camps, but in Custer the Y is so much more. All of it free or at low cost for those who need it most. That’s where you come in. Help us make the Custer YMCA stronger as we reach people of all ages and all backgrounds in every corner. When you volunteer or give, you’re building a stronger Custer community.

With your help we can do so much more.



As a nonprofit, the Y is able to strengthen community  because of the dedicated youth, families and individuals  who share our passion and make the Y part of their  lives. They give their time, resources and talents—every day and in hundreds of ways—because they know they  can improve the lives of others while enhancing their own through the Y. Well-being for many of our neighbors is all too frequently limited by income or social isolation.

Within the Custer community, the Y offers opportunities  for every child, teen or adult to achieve his or her potential regardless of economic status. With your  help, the Y can continue to expand programming and outreach where it is needed most. Please consider volunteering your time, making a contribution, or  sharing your story of the Y’s impact.
