YMCA Nationwide Membership

With Nationwide Membership, you don’t have to take a vacation from the YMCA.

Summer vacation season is upon us, and while travels may take you away from your hometown YMCA, that doesn’t mean you have to push the pause button on your fitness routine.

The Lancaster Family YMCA – along with 2,600 other YMCAs across the country – participate in the YMCA Nationwide Membership program. This program enables Y members to visit any other participating Y in the United States with no extra cost.

Members of the Lancaster Family YMCA automatically receive the free benefit of YMCA Nationwide Membership when they join. However, we recommend that you contact the YMCA you hope to visit during your travels to see if they participate in the program.
