Every YMCA member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive a scholarship. The Y offers scholarships on memberships and programs.

The AWAY benefit with your YMCA membership can be used at more than 2,400 participating YMCA's across the country. Because each YMCA is a separate non-profit organization, policies vary on the use of facilities, equipment, services, and programs by out-of-town YMCA members. Depending on the participating Y's AWAY policy, you may use the facility either for free or for a small charge.
The policy at the Switzerland County YMCA is that AWAY members may use the facility up to 4 times per month free of charge.
