Door County YMCA breaks ground on future addition

After ten years of patiently waiting, you will soon see the most substantial improvements to the Door County YMCA's Sturgeon Bay facility since the pool was added in 2001. Plans to renovate the Sturgeon Bay Center began in 2012, but the focus quickly turned to improve its Northern Door facility in Fish Creek. As fundraising for the Sturgeon Bay facility started to hit its stride, so did the impact of COVID-19. The Door County YMCA has rebounded since March 2020, with its membership and program participation at or above pre-pandemic levels. Campaign coordinator and former Door County YMCA CEO Tom Beernsten told the crowd that this was as fulfilling of a campaign as he has ever been a part of during his 50-plus year career.

Outgoing Door County YMCA CEO Heidi Erickson explained the new facilities' positive additions when they are completed next year.

The Door County YMCA has inched closer to its $10.3 million campaign goal, adding nearly $200,000 in donations since it announced a $1 million gift from the Bunning family two weeks ago.
