Membership Information

Senior Center Membership

Becoming a member is free, easy, and open to anyone over the age of 55.

The Senior Center offers extensive programming for Northampton seniors and seniors in the surrounding communities. The center is a vibrant and active environment where many social and cultural groups come together. The Senior Center does all it can to create an inclusive and welcoming environment where programs meet the diverse interests of its members. Most programs are open to all members with some higher fees, and/or wait times for registration for non-residents. This is usually only when there is limited capacity or if a program is grant funded and intended for residents only. 

NOTE: Everyone will be required to update their membership before returning to the center!!

How to become a member

The membership onboarding process happens at the Senior Center's welcome desk and can include a tour. (Anyone wishing to become a member must do so in person). Appointments are not necessary and this process takes a maximum of 15 minutes.

Why become a member

It is important to become a member for many reasons. Unless someone (age 55+) is attending on a one-time basis as a guest, we request that all participants complete the member registration form and have a short orientation which includes issuance of a scan card and taking a picture to place on file with pertinent emergency contact information. This ensures that Senior Center Staff can adequately assist in the event of an emergency. Your personal information will remain confidential and will only be utilized in case of an emergency, for contact tracing, or if Staff need to reach you for any reason.

Membership Renewals

An essential part of our process for welcoming you back to the building will include updating your membership information, emergency contact info, obtaining waivers and registering you for the online portal called My Active Center which will allow you to sign up and pay for classes anytime (online). This process will need to be completed before you can start using the center's facilities or attending any programs. It will be quick we promise! Appointments will be available from 8:00-2:00 starting August 2nd. Please email seniorservices@northamptonma.gov or for an appointment, call 587-1228, option 4.

Activities available in August

We are planning to have the Coffee Shop and/or a coffee station available, help with social services (by appointment), access to the internet and the ability to check out iPads and Chromebooks for use on-site. The lobby, the Game Room and some other spaces for socializing will be made available. Please read on for information about use of the Fitness Center. As of this writing in early July, there is still much to determine about what we will be able to offer in addition to these things so other details about offerings will be announced later in July as well as throughout August.
