The YMCA’s mission is what makes us unique because our goal is to put Judeo-Christian principles into practice. It is our desire to see that mission strengthened while remaining open and welcoming to all. Plus, you’ll get all of these great benefits:

Group Exercise Classes

With your membership, you can choose from hundreds of exercise classes for beginners up to the fitness enthusiast. Our Ys offer traditional aerobics, yoga, pilates, cycling and many other group exercise classes, including Strength Train Together, Balance & Flex Together, ZUMBA®, all taught in a fun, welcoming environment. In addition to the group exercise classes, our trained wellness staff can help design a fitness program that meets your individual needs.

Family Friendly Programs

Members receive special rates on Afterschool, day camp, sports and other programs for children and families.

Strength and Cardio Equipment

Each of our full-facility Ys has a variety of strength and cardio equipment for members. Whether you prefer running on a treadmill, cycling beside a friend, reading while on an elliptical trainer, lifting free weights or using strength training equipment, you can do it at the YMCA.

Quality Child Care

We are dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable programs for our youth.  Staff members are partners with parents and other caregivers, working together to help kids grow up healthy, happy and strong. From preschool and school-readiness programs to fun afterschool activities, our programs give kids the chance to make positive choices about their lives and how they spend their time.

We also provide quality child care in ChildWatch while you’re working out or participating in other Y activities.

Swimming and Water Activities

Many of our facilities have year-round indoor pools and some have outdoor seasonal pools. There’s time for recreational swim and water aerobic activities. Certified lifeguards staff our pools, and our swim lessons are taught by trained instructors.

Membership For All

Our YMCA is a membership organization open to all people. The YMCA welcomes women and men, girls and boys of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, abilities and financial circumstances. Programs and branches embrace diversity, reflecting the needs and composition of our community. Our “Membership For All” program is available for those with a demonstrated financial need.

My Y is Every Y in New England – Reciprocity

Another great reason to belong to the Y! We are for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.  We want to encourage our members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region.  Now, full facility Y members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout the region, at no extra charge.

All YMCA members from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont will be welcome – free – with their active/current YMCA ID card anywhere in New England and a valid photo ID.

Some restrictions may apply so please check with the Y you plan to visit by going to their website and clicking on the My Y/Every Y to learn more.
