Georgetown County, an area with five rivers, a bay and an oceanfront, struggled with the need for community swimming facilities and other youth and family recreational facilities for years. It had been evident that too many children and adults drowned in the county’s waters and too many health and wellness concerns arose too early in life. The Georgetown County Family YMCA—serving a region from Andrews to the west, Plantersville and Pleasant Hill to the north, oceanfront communities to the east, and Maryville and North Santee to the south—proposed to resolve that struggle by building a YMCA for improved and expanded aquatics programming sorely needed in the community. This exciting, new community asset would be funded with private donations, public and private grants, and inkind contributions.
By pooling the resources of the community, the YMCA, and the families we serve, the Georgetown County Family YMCA began to position itself to build the facility longneeded by more than 56,000 underserved residents in our county. We remain committed to fulfilling our mission “to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build the healthy spirit, mind and body for all.”
Facilities & Equipment:
Parking Lot, Children & Pets
For safety of all parties, no child under the age of 13 should be left unattended in any area of the YMCA, to include the parking lots. While every effort will be made to locate the parents, the Georgetown County Sherriff’s Office will be notified immediately of any unattended children discovered in a vehicle.
We love our pets, too. But, for the safety of our members and guests as well as the pets, please do not bring them to YMCA campus. There is no place to keep them safe and comfortable and it is a DHEC regulation that they not enter the facility. Leaving pets unattended in vehicles or in the parking lot is forbidden on YMCA campus. Guide dogs and service dogs are permitted.
