Y of the USA “AWAY” Program:
Members of the Family Y may visit other YMCAs participating in the “AWAY” (Always Welcome At the Y) program. Each Y sets its own policy, but most honor out-of-state Y membership free of charge. In addition, reciprocal relationships have been established with many Ys throughout New England.
Members from Y’s outside of New England may visit the Westport Weston Family Y a total of three times for free. Following the third free visit, individuals must open a membership with the Westport Weston Family Y or pay a daily guest fee.
