The public is invited to try the YMCA Buffalo Niagara for free Saturday through June 8, and if a person joins they pay no join fee.
The Y includes six branches – the Southtowns Family Y in West Seneca, Delaware and William-Emslie branches in Buffalo, the Ken-Ton Y in the Town of Tonawanda, the Independent Health Family Y in Amherst, and the Lockport branch in the Town of Lockport – as well as more than 50 after-school programs, 20 summer day camps, and a pair of overnight camps: Camp Kenan in Barker and Camp Weona in Wyoming County.
YMCA member benefits include discounted rates on summer camp, Free Child Watch, and, in every branch, unlimited use of the pool, gym, and wellness center, and access to free group fitness classes and senior programs.
Regular monthly membership rates still apply for those who join, though a join fee of up to $75 will be waived.
The Y offers financial assistance for those who qualify. Additional savings may be available through health care providers, particularly for seniors.
