Away Program

Away means Always Welcome At YMCAs.

When you join the YMCA of Broome County, you become part of a national movement of 18.1 million members in more than 2,400 YMCAs. Because each YMCA if autonomous, not-for-profit, and not a franchise, local YMCA policies vary on use of equipment, facilities, services and program by visiting members from out-of-town or from nearby YMCAs. If you plan to visit another YMCA, it is a good idea to call that YMCA about visiting member policies.

To find a YMCA nearest where you are visiting go to the YMCA locator at www.ymca.net

YMCA members visiting the YMCA of Broome County are allowed 14 free visits a year.
