New Member Guide

Welcome to the Summit Area YMCA

We’re so happy you have joined our vibrant community and we thank you for choosing us to be a part of your journey.

At the Y, we work together each day to make a meaningful difference in the lives of everyone who walks through our doors. The Summit Area YMCA (SAY) is much more than a “gym and swim” facility. As a cause-driven organization, we welcome people of all ages and abilities, and our promise is to strengthen community and foster wellness in spirit, mind, and body. 

While in our Ys, you are our number one priority. We’re here to support in any way we can! We put this guide together to ensure the start of your Y experience is the best it can be.

Whenever and wherever you need it!
