Hartsvillen Family YMCA

Building, growing, and thriving, the Hartsville Family YMCA was founded in 1985 as a storefront operation with one employee. By 1988, the Y moved into the historic Coker Department Store building in the heart of downtown. In 1998, a major expansion and renovation was completed resulting in a full facility YMCA that far exceeded the initial dreams.

South Carolina Reciprocal Membership Program

SC RecipMy Y is Now Every Y in South Carolina

The Y movement is for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace, or in another region.

Now, Metro/Hartsville members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the state, at no extra charge.


Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at any participating YMCA and enjoy free access.


  • The Reciprocal Membership Program is valid for Metro/Hartsville members only.
  • Visitors to other Y’s must present a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID upon their first visit and complete a visiting member waiver or standard membership application form with liability waiver.
  • Metro/Hartsville members must use their home branch at least 50% of the time. Program discounts do not apply. Participating YMCAs reserve the right to restrict facility or program access.

*Hartsville or Metro members only will receive reciprocity. Because Darlington and Chesterfield rates are discounted, their members will not receive reciprocity. Darlington and Chesterfield members may upgrade to a Metro membership in order to receive reciprocity. This means a Darlington or Chesterfield member must pay a guest pass fee to use one of the other Ys in SC, but a Hartsville or Metro member does not have to pay guest pass fees to use any Y in SC. A Hartsville member will need to be checked in at our branches through the Reciprocity Check-in, but the Metro member will still be able to scan their card at all branches for entry.
