Our Rotary meeting Tuesday is at the new St. Cloud Area Family YMCA (2001 Stockinger Dr, St Cloud, MN 56303) 

Our regular meeting and lunch will start at noon in the building's community room. The activities will start about 12:30.

The YMCA staff has prepared a schedule of tour times and activities. To help us understand scope, please follow this link and tell us which classes you are hoping to participate in.

 Provided in the agenda below is a brief description of each activity.  

  • Yoga class – For yogis of ALL levels- challenge your body, mind, and spirit with invigorating poses that focus on core strength, balance, and flexibility. 
  • Spin Class – Push your cycling to the max with one of our top fitness coaches who will guide you through a series of empowering levels on our new cycling bikes.
  • Climbing Wall – Get in touch with your inner daredevil while climbing one of our 7 courses. Degrees of difficulty vary. Please be sure to sign a Rockwall Waiver at the front desk first.
  • Wallyball – Join a light-hearted but competitive game in one of our new racquetball courts.
  • Volleyball – Use 1 of our 3 basketball courts, conveniently transformed into a volleyball court for your competitive enjoyment.
  • Family Pool – Heated to 93*, you can keep a slice of summer year round. Swim at your leisure, or take advantage of our current channel for a cardio work out that’s easy on your joints.
  • Walking track- 9 laps is a mile, and for all of our running enthusiasts, the ability to keep  running indoors during the winter is priceless. 

Tours can also be held after the activities.
