Located in Barnwell’s Industrial Park, the Barnwell County Family YMCA has been the perfect addition to this close-knit community. When joining the Barnwell County branch you join as a Branch Specific member, which gives you access to everything our particular branch has to offer. If you are wanting a little more than what our facility offers then you can join as a Metro Member, which gives you access to all the Family YMCA locations in the Greater Augusta area.
We offer child care while you work out so that you can put your mind at ease about what to do with the kiddos so you can make it to the gym. Our facility offers a state of the art wellness center. Need help getting started? Not a problem! We have wellness staff on hand to show you the ropes around this place.
Need an extra push through your workouts? Try one of our group exercise classes or see one of our personal trainers. After your workout relax your mind and unwind with our licensed massage therapist. There is something for everyone at the Barnwell County Family YMCA. Join us!

Play and Learn Child Enrichment Program
Play and Learn child enrichment program is now available at all 11 CSRA area branches and is the only one of its kind in the region. This program has been uniquely developed by the Y’s educational experts to provide engaging curriculum to help children develop in the areas of music and movement, literacy, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), and arts and crafts while parents are utilizing branch facilities for up to two-hour blocks of time. The service is free to all active Y members and no pre-registration is required.
During normal branch operating hours, parents can place their child in Play and Learn for rotating sessions including music and movement, devotionals, storytelling and reading, STEAM and arts and crafts with age appropriate activities for every child. Play and Learn is designed to stimulate minds and bodies, while teaching competence to build autonomy and reinforce positive attitudes and actions.
Curriculum changes every week throughout the year, with the same offerings each day at every branch should a member utilize multiple facilities for consistency. The program is on a voluntary basis for families and religious beliefs are respected and inclusive, should families have specific preferences.
Play and Learn is designed to help children identify and reinforce their individual strengths, grow their abilities with their natural talents and gain confidence to believe in themselves. It’s a fun and engaging environment for children to learn and develop, while providing parents the assurance that their child is being cared for during their workout in a meaningful way.
