The best way to learn more about the YMCA is by visiting us and taking a tour with one of our friendly staff members. Many YMCAs will provide you with a guest pass so you can experience the YMCA for yourself before you commit to a full membership.

Membership Fees & Types

Membership fees at a YMCA health and fitness centre are set by the local YMCA that operates it.

Many Ys offer a number of membership options, such as child, adult, and family so you can make the best choice for you and your needs.

What’s Included

Each YMCA health and fitness centre is a little bit different so what’s included in the price of your membership will vary from location to location. Read about our programs to learn more about what may be offered at your local YMCA. 

Financial Assistance

We never turn anyone away because they cannot afford the price of a membership. You may be eligible for reduced membership fees through our financial assistance program.
