Visit for the dates of Northern Berkshire & Bennington Rec Pool Closings

Our Northern Berkshire and Bennington Rec branches have scheduled their Annual Pool Closings for Cleaning and Maintenance. BFYMCA Members are invited to use any Berkshire Family YMCA facility pool while their home branch pool is closed.


Making an impact is just a click away

Built in 1909, our building at 292 North Street has served Pittsfield well and without pause for more than a century. The historic structure is a downtown fixture-- both architecturally and as a health and recreation facility-- but generations of continuous heavy use have taken their toll on the original building and the 1980s expansion. Fortunately, the building is structurally sound and able to be modernized to 21st century standards. The Y is committed to downtown Pittsfield’s revitalization by providing a key anchor of activity seven days a week throughout the year.
