As a member of the Capital District YMCA, you join a community of like-minded people striving for healthy living and a better lifestyle. The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive.

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.

The Y is more than a gym, and you have chose to be a part of it. You’re steps away from being part of that community!

We’re glad to have you!
