Ohio Membership Reciprocity Program

Map of OhioAnother great reason to belong to the YMCA!

The Y movement is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members have the flexibility to use other Y facilities throughout Ohio at one low rate.

How It Works

Simply present your active YMCA membership card and photo ID at any participating Ohio YMCA and enjoy free access. See important Program Details below.

So get out, explore Ohio and stay connected to the Y!
