Payment Details

*The Joiner Fee is a one-time charge to new members or past members whose membership has lapsed more than 29 days. These funds are used to improve the building and grounds.

Membership can be paid with cash, check or credit card (MasterCard or VISA only) on a monthly or on an annual basis. Membership fees for adult and family memberships may be paid monthly through an automatic payment (bank draft) from your checking account to the YMCA. Monthly Bank Draft is recommended as a convenient payment method that also provides you with a continuous membership that never expires unless you request it. To get started, please bring a voided check.

Membership Termination

Bank draft members can also terminate their membership. Termination forms can completed online under the Forms section or may be picked up at the Front Desk, signed and submitted to Membership Administration. Be sure to allow AT LEAST 7 BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR to your membership bank draft date (the 1st of the 15th of the month) for processing. No fax or e-mails are accepted.

Financial Assistance

The New Canaan YMCA strives to serve all members of our community, regardless of individual economic circumstances. Financial assistance applications are available online or at our Front Desk. Thanks to the generous donations made to our Y’s Annual Support Campaign, in 2012, our Y awarded nearly $400,000 in financial assistance.
