AWAY Members (Nation Wide)
Members visiting our facilities from YMCAs outside of the state will be welcomed to our facilities by displaying their cards.  We will welcome them into our buildings at no charge for 14 visits.  This national reciprocal recommendation by the Y-USA is intended as a convenience for YMCA members who travel occasionally away from their YMCAs and is designed for reciprocal privileges 50 miles or more from their home YMCAs.
