When you belong to the Y, you build more than muscle, you strengthen our community. You’re committing to more than simply becoming healthier. You are supporting the values and programs that strengthen your community. Every day the impact of the Y is felt when someone makes a healthy choice, a teacher or coach inspires a child and builds their confidence, and when neighbors come together for the common good. 

Member safety is our top priority and the YMCA is clean, safe, and in full compliance with all State of Connecticut and local public health guidelines.


  • At the Y you have two options for membership, a program membership or a full facility membership.
  • A program membership is a basic membership so that you can register for classes.
  • A full facility membership gives you access to the facilities and you save when you register for programs and summer camp with special lower rates for full members.
