Membership Benefits

In addition to our financial assistance options, the following are unique benefits of being a Y member:

“I love the West Boise Y, it’s kid friendly! I enjoy walking the track and seeing the children play in the gym below me. I’ve got a “trainer” who is setting me up on the weight machines. I have been gone from the y for about five years. I’m glad to be back! Looking forward to getting back in shape.” – Mary, Y Member

Access to State-of-the-Art Facilities

Enjoy our fitness studios, cardio and weight training equipment, indoor pools, basketball/racquetball courts, indoor climbing walls, locker rooms, family centers, comfortable common areas and more!

Membership Travels with You

Nationwide membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA. We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our mission to strengthen communities.

Not Just a Gym ‘n’ Swim

Our programs go far beyond the walls of our facilities. From YMCA Camp at Horsethief Reservoir in Cascade, to our youth sports programs that take place in various schools, to our races and fun runs held throughout the community, to our 21 child care sites around the valley, Y programs are impacting children, adults and families every day.

Something for Everyone

The Y works to ensure that every individual of any gender, income, faith, race, sexual orientation or cultural background, has the opportunity to live life to the fullest.
