Please note: To ensure that all members and community members can interact within a safe and secure space, the Summit Area YMCA has teamed with Raptor Tech, whose instant screening program allows Summit Area YMCA staff to better protect members and guests from unwanted visitors, namely sexual offenders. All adults over the age of 18, including guests and volunteers, will be required to present a piece of state or government issued photo identification and get cleared by the Raptor system before being able to enter any Summit Area YMCA facility. If a potential threat is identified, the Raptor system sends instant alerts to designated management staff via email and text, law enforcement will be notified if necessary. Over 26,000 school and community facilities throughout the United States are protected by Raptor, a program with a comprehensive database with over a decade of accumulating data updated on a weekly basis.
