The Greatest Benefit

With a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, and giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership will not just bring about meaningful change in yourself, but also in your community.

AWAY Program

When you join the Henry County YMCA, you will have access to over 2,700 YMCA* locations nationwide. Since each local YMCA policies and rules may vary, as on out-of-town guest, it is always a good idea to call that YMCA location about their policies for visiting member. At the Y, we are so much more than a gym. We are a family that cares for our members at home and away.

Traveling to another Y?

Your membership to the Henry County YMCA means that you are “Always Welcome at YMCA”. This means that when you travel to other cities, you can visit a participating YMCA as their guest, according to their policies. Please visit the member service desk before your trip and we can help find a YMCA family near you, or visit www.ymca.net for more information on a Y near your destination.

Visiting the Henry County YMCA

YMCA members visiting the Henry County YMCA may use their YMCA membership free of charge any open day and time at our facility. Membership and identification must be shown and verified at the member service front desk prior to use. Once verified, please check in at the member service desk each time you visit.

Corporate Membership

As a leader in your company, you know that a healthy, happy, and productive workforce is key to your companies success. Through Corporate Membership at the Henry County YMCA, employees can get fit, stay fit, and save money all while helping your company improve its fiscal fitness.

For employees to join the YMCA, the company chooses an open enrollment day time period. This can be a specific date range at any time of the year or can be specified as “open” enrollment, meaning employees may join the YMCA year around to take advantage of the corporate discount. If you prefer, a YMCA staff member will come to your workplace at a time that fits the company schedule to enroll employees and complete the application process. We help you establish a contact person and they will be equipped with information and materials to enroll employees. The Business Office and/or Director of Member Relations will also be available to assist in this process.

Reasons Your Company Should Participate

Here's the breakdown of the healthy lifestyle of a typical company:

  • 80% do little to no exercise
  • 60% sit most of the day
  • 35% are overweight
  • 35-45% experience job burnout due to high stress
  • 30% smoke
  • 30% are prone to lower back pain
  • 20-25% heave hypertension and/or high blood pressure

These statistics show risk for chronic disease, heart disease and cancer that can lead to an increase in medical claims, absenteeism, turn-over and an overall decrease in productivity. Participating in Henry County YMCA's Corporate Membership program can help reduce your employee's risks and lower your risks as an employer.

As a Corporate Member, all employees receive the same great benefits and services as all other Henry County YMCA members.

Two Plans to Choose From

Companies must have a minimum of 10 employees sign-up to qualify for this discount.

Plan B

For companies choosing Plan B, employees receive 10% off the adult/family membership rates. The joiner fee will be waived, so there is no start-up cost to the employee!

Financial Help

The Henry County YMCA is committed to serving the entire community. Through our scholarship program, qualified individuals and their families are granted financial assistance to enable participation and membership. It is the intent of the YMCA that no families or youth are denied membership or participation due to lack of financial resources.

Funding for scholarships comes from grant sources and from fellow members and the people in the community who donate to the YMCA's Annual Campaign. Last year over $75,500 was awarded in scholarships.

Am I Eligible?

Applicants must work or reside in the service area of the Henry County YMCA. Assistance is granted on the basis of financial need within the available resources of the Y.

The YMCA believes a sense of ownership and pride is developed if the scholarship recipient has contributed to the cost of YMCA involvement. Therefore, applicants may be asked to pay a portion of the fees. The YMCA grants scholarships to the extent that funds are available. The YMCA reserves the right to refuse assistance to any applicant.

Scholarships can be granted for one session of a program such as swim lessons, or for up to six month's membership with optional renewals.

How do I Apply?

The Henry County YMCA requires that individuals provide information regarding income, family size, and necessary expenses so that it can award scholarships in a fair and consistent manner. All records are kept confidential. For more information contact our Membership Director, Kelsay Smith at (765) 529-3804 x4 or by email at ksmith@henrycountyymca.org
