We know wellness when we experience it. It's an overall feeling of health and wholeness. A sense of belonging. The energy to live our fullest life. The desire to continually learn new things and improve our skills. And the chance to contribute and help someone else.

Financial Assistance

The YMCA of Bristol is a nonprofit health and community service organization committed to helping people grow in spirit, mind and body. Everyone is welcome and those not currently able to pay the full fee may be awarded partial financial assistance on a sliding fee scale designed to fit each household’s financial situation. Every YMCA member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive a financial assistance. YMCA members can feel confident knowing that they are a part of an organization that cares greatly for the well-being of all people, and is committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Everyone is WELCOME at the YMCA!
