Membership Reciprocity



As an adding benefit of being part of our Y family, your Y membership* allows access to over 700 participating YMCA's in the United States and Puerto Rico, at no additional cost! Because being a part of our Y family means you'll be close to 'home' everywhere you go. Whether you are traveling on the west coast for business or visiting relatives down south, all Ys are open to Y members to provide a safe and welcoming environment for everyone - no matter where you are. Nationwide Membership is an essential part of our collaborative cause to strengthen communities across the nation.

*For Berkeley Heights YMCA Members: The benefits of nationwide membership reciprocity are eligible for All-In-One Family and All-In-One Adult members only.

Visit YMCA.NET to find a participating Y location in the area you are visiting.

The first time you visit a Y outside of your home Y, you will need to sign a waiver. It takes just a few minutes, with a photo ID, and once it’s done, you won’t have to do it again! If you know you are heading out of town, feel free to stop by the Member Services Desk at your local Y and sign the waiver in-branch. You can print and fill the form out ahead of time, too. Then you are all set to enjoy the benefits of nationwide membership!

If you are traveling soon, please review our Know Before You Go rules. If you have specific questions, contact the Membership Director at your home branch:

Berkeley Heights YMCA (908)464-8373
Summit YMCA (908)273-3330
The Learning Circle YMCA (908)273-7040

Please note, certain restrictions may apply and/or vary among participating Y's so we recommend you call ahead prior to your visit. 


We care about your Safety

As your safety, and that of your family's, is always our primary concern, all YMCAs conduct regular sex offender screenings on all members, participants and guests. If a sex offender match occurs, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel membership, end program participation, and remove visitation access.
