At the Y, you're not just a member of the pool or the gym, you're part of a community that is here for everyone and works towards providing practical and affordable answers to large-scale community issues focusing on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We're excited to welcome you to enjoy our brand new state-of-the-art, Olympic-sized (50m x 25m), outdoor, heated pool with two diving boards and a zero-entry kiddie pool surrounded by beautiful landscaping for an extended summer season this year -- open through September!

Membership fees are determined by the estimated cost it will take to run and operate the entire facility. The Berkeley Heights Community Pool at the YMCA operates independently from the town of Berkeley Heights and therefore is not subsidized nor is access included as a part of other Summit Area YMCA memberships.
A refund request for cancellation of full season memberships must be made in writing by the participant. A full refund will be provided for full season memberships if cancelled on or prior to the pool's opening day. Cancellations after opening day do not qualify for a refund but will be issued a credit that is valid for 12 months from the date of issue if the membership is cancelled within the first two weeks of the pool opening. A system credit of 75% will be given to members who cancel within the first 7 days. A system credit of 50% will be given to members who cancel within the first 14 days. Full season membership cancellations received after 14 days will not be honored and are not subject to credit. August & September membership rates are non-refundable. Credit may be used at any branch of the Summit Area YMCA. Programs cancelled by the YMCA will be made available for a full refund or credit. Cancellation and refund policy is subject to change. Credit/refund may take up to two weeks to process.
Facility access ID cards will be issued for all members over ages 18 months and photos can be taken prior to the member’s first visit to BHCP. Each member is required to swipe their ID card at the entrance every time they visit the facility. Members may pick up their swipe cards and have their photos taken at the membership desk of the Berkeley Heights YMCA located at 59 Locust Ave, Berkeley Heights, NJ, 07922 beginning May 1, 2021.
