Benefits of Membership

MEMBERSHIP MEANS MORE AT THE Y

Prioritizing your health is more important than ever, and although we do the fitness thing really well, when you join the YMCA, you're not just a member of a gym, you're part of a community that is here for everyone -- and we're here for good, to support your physical, mental and social health needs with programming and activities for all ages, interests, and skill levels.

In 1886, we were founded as the Young Men's Christian Association, but today, we are The Y. Part of a world-class organization, we are one of the area’s leading nonprofits, that values, and is made stronger by, its diverse people. The Summit Area YMCA is committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose, and each other. Working locally, we focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being, and inspiring action in and across the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. 

Our commitment to equal opportunity regardless of gender, age, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation shines through in the more than 15,000 individuals we serve annually in our free and fee-based programs and services. As one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations our history of working side-by-side with our neighbors helps ensure that everyone has the opportunities, relationships, and resources necessary to learn, grow and thrive. Through the generosity of our members, donors, and partners, we are able to offer financial assistance for our programs and services to those in need. No matter who you are or where you’re from, we believe that we’re stronger when we come together. 

We'd love for you to join us and we can't wait to welcome you!
