YMCA Membership

A YMCA membership comes with many benefits for you and the community.

Membership fees are invested right back into the organization to help the YMCA deliver community initiative programs (like our after school programs for at risk youth and indigenous healing programs).  Fees also help support our financial assistance program which allows all Calgarians access to YMCA programs, services and facilities, the opportunity to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to belong to a positive centre of community.
