For more than a workout.
For a better us.

When you join the Y, you’re committing to more than simply becoming healthier. You are supporting the values and programs that strengthen your community. At the Y, children learn what they can achieve, families spend quality time together, and we all build relationships that deepen our sense of belonging.

YMCA Membership Options

Membership at the Y is convenient and easy with no annual contracts.

As a Y member you have full use of our facilities and access to a wide variety of group exercise and aquatics classes with no additional cost. Membership payments are automatically drafted each month from the bank account or credit card of your choice. Membership accounts can be drafted on the 1st or 15th of each month.

Payment of one month’s membership fee plus the one-time investment fee is needed to activate your membership.

YMCA Nationwide Membership Benefits

Membership at the Lancaster Family YMCA comes with the added benefit of YMCA Nationwide Membership. Learn more about this program and how Y members can use YMCA facilities across the country.

Membership For All

As a nonprofit, charitable organization, we believe everyone deserves a chance to learn, grow and thrive, so the Lancaster Family YMCA offers Financial Scholarships to individuals and families who might otherwise not be able to afford membership or program fees.
