It's Better Together
Do More with Your Membership

A Y membership has always been more than access to a facility. Your memberships help us serve more neighbors, especially in times of need. In addition to memberships for adults, family, youth and seniors, we've added new options.

This year, we introduced After-Hours Access at the Landing YMCA, which is now available as a membership add-on and provides access to our strength center outside of our normal operating hours.

Our Impact Membership gives you the opportunity to be a part of our YMCA, with or without a facility, in a meaningful way. By becoming an Impact Member, you help us address the needs in our community like food insecurity, education, and isolation. You also receive two passes a month good for use at either facility! Join today and become part of the solution.
