the Northwestern Connecticut YMCA
As one of Northwest Connecticut’s premier non-profit organizations the Y is a cause for strengthening our community. That’s why we’re here working with you every day, making sure that you, your family and community have the resources and support you need to learn, grow and thrive.
We are more than a gym – we’re a cause. With a focus on developing the potential of kids, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself, but in your community too.
When you join the Y you belong to a place where:
- Parents find a safe, positive environment for children to learn good values, social skills and behaviors.
- Families come together to have fun and spend quality time with each other.
- Children and teens play, learn who they are and what they can achieve, and are accepted.
- Adults connect with friends, pursue interests and learn how to live healthier.
- Communities thrive because neighbors support each other and give back.
- We all build relationships that further our sense of belonging and purpose.

Monthly E.F.T. Draft
Monthly Electronic Funds Transfer Draft is a payment plan that allows a member to pay for a continuous membership in equal monthly payments that are automatically deducted from one’s checking, savings or credit card account for as long as one belongs to the Y. This payment plan does not lock you into a set period of time, but does require 30 days written notice for cancellation.
Other Payment Plans
Memberships can also be paid-in-full at time of application using cash, check, major credit and debit cards. Annual membership payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. In the event that a member does not use his/her membership to the extent that was anticipated, no refunds or credits will be issued.
This one-time $60 fee is for all new members and members who allow their membership to expire for a 60-day period. There will be NO Joining Fee for paid-in-full and monthly E.F.T. draft memberships when you register for a minimum 1 year. The funds are used for equipment purchases and capital improvements.
Guest Pass Fee
Passes purchased within 30 days of joining may be applied to the joining fee of a new membership. Maximum purchase of 6 day passes per year. Children under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
Youth (<13 yrs.): $5
- Teen (13-17): $8

We never want finances to be the reason that someone can not be a part of the Y community. To that end, we offer three assistance programs, funded by our annual Strong Kids Campaign: See Forms Below.
