The Wallingford Family YMCA has been a leader in wellness for 70 years. It’s not just about how many reps you can do or how fast you can run the mile. We change lives, build families and reach out to neighbors in need. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, health and our neighbors. By joining the YMCA, you will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself, but in your community too.

Get stronger, feel healthier & be a part of something bigger.


Another great reason to belong to the YMCA!

The Y is for healthy living and we want you to stay active and keep moving wherever you travel in New England. As member, you can bring your membership card and photo ID and enjoy free access to almost every Y in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.


So get out and explore New England and stay active at the Y.


Does it cost extra to participate in this program?

No, all Association members may participate at no additional charge. The Reciprocity program is added benefit to our members when visiting other communities.


How will I know if there are any restrictions and what they are?

Please visit the website of the Y you would like to visit. All YMCAs will have updated information posted on their website. Please note that My Y is Every Y participants must use their home branch at least 50% of the time.


Does this replace the “Always Welcome at the YMCA” (AWAY) program?

No, the AWAY Program is helpful to those members who are traveling outside of New England or for members outside of New England visiting our YMCA.


What do I need to do to visit the Wallingford YMCA?

Please bring your current membership card and a photo ID. You will need to fill out a Reciprocity form and we will contact your YMCA to confirm that you have a full membership.


PLEASE NOTE: Due to capacity constraints, our Child Watch services are not available for reciprocity guests. Additionally, our West Side basketball court is not available for reciprocity guests, Monday-Friday from 4:00-10:00PM. We are sorry for the inconvenience & we hope that you come visit us another time!


What if I want to sign up for a program and I am a member at another YMCA?

You would be considered a program member and would pay the program member rate.


Can I bring a guest with me when I visit under the Reciprocity program?

Your guest must show a photo ID, fill out a release form and pay for a Guest Pass.
