Wildwood Y programs and classes will be called off when Rockwood School District calls snow days or early dismissals for inclement weather. Should this occur in the morning, a YMCA re-evaluation will be made at 2 p.m. for classes and programs held in the afternoons and evenings, and on the morning of the next day if applicable. YMCA facilities like the pool, fitness center and gymnasium typically remain open even when classes and programs are canceled. Some services or areas may be limited or unavailable. Please call us at 458-6636 to check status.
