Membership... For All
The YMCA believes in providing membership and program services to all who desire to participate in the YMCA. If you are interested in making the YMCA a part of your life but feel you cannot afford the regular rates, you may be awarded a partial scholarship of assistance. The scholarship program, supported in part through contributions to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign, provides membership and program scholarships for those in need within our available resources. Scholarships are granted on a sliding fee basis, using your household gross monthly income and household size as a guideline.
