YMCA of the Foothills

Membership & Rates

a group of YMCA members standing together promoting activities


As a membership organization, belonging to the YMCA of the Foothills means sharing in values and the mission the Y has offered its members since it originated in 1844. Your membership allows you and your family to focus on the important things in life: family, fitness and fun! You will make new friends, discover new interests and improve your health in spirit, mind and body.

When you join the Y, you belong to a community of men, women and children who strive every day to be healthy, confident and connected. People belong to the Y for a variety of reasons ranging from fitness needs to social opportunities to child care. Adults, families, seniors and youth all find a place to belong at the Crescenta-Canada and Verdugo Hills Family YMCAs. We specialize in people, relationships, and programs that nurture spirit, mind and body. Join your 24,000 friends and neighbors and experience the Y movement today!

I’m a member because...
“Joining the Y has been a life-changing experience. I am single, have few friends, and my son was living on the east coast. A friend convinced me to join a water fitness class, and today I can honestly say the Y and the friends I have made are like family."
— Zana

AWAY Program

AWAY means Always Welcome At the YMCA.

When you join the YMCA of the Foothills, you become part of a national movement of 18.1 million members in more than 2,400 YMCAs. Because each YMCA is autonomous, not-for-profit, and not a franchise, local YMCA policies vary on the 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 YMCA of the Foothills are allowed 3 FREE visits a month.
