Seasonal Pool Passes in Southern York County

The community pool hours are temporarily closed until further notice.

Summit Grove opens its outdoor pool to the local community! A limited number of seasonal pool passes/memberships are available for an afternoon schedule from Memorial Day to Labor Day. 



Summit Grove’s outdoor pool is a refreshing way to relax in the summertime! We have a small in-ground baby pool and a large in-ground pool surrounded by pool chairs and umbrellas. There are also bathhouses available at the inner circle.

In addition to the pool, Summit Grove maintains a beautiful upper field area with a small playground, volleyball, basketball, gaga ball, wall ball, whiffle ball and more. The upper field is available for pool pass members provided it is not booked for group rentals.

Summit Grove’s pool is established and operated on Christian principles. While pool pass holders do not need to sign a statement of faith or hold to a particular set of Christian beliefs, we do require that all members agree to our pool rules and principles, and the rules of Summit Grove.
