A phased re-opening of the Kelowna Family Y, H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre and the Downtown Y, beginning with health and fitness, will be determined in collaboration with the City of Kelowna and an announcement will be made as soon as possible. Learn more

On Wednesday, June 14, the Kelowna-Rutland Lions Club members visited the Kelowna Family YMCA with a big cheque that will help a lot more local children and youth in need. 

The Lions Clubs International and YMCA’s share a core belief – to serve their community. One of the Lions key missions is to support children through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. 

The $1,000 gift to the YMCA will make it possible for more underprivileged children, youth and families from our community to access Y child care and other programs that will support their health, development and positively impact their lives.
