Here's to the one that started it all!

The YMCA of Okanagan has been serving our community in Rutland since 1981. Since then, we’ve made continuous upgrades and adjustments to the facility, programs, and equipment to adapt to the changing needs of our members through generations.

But what hasn’t changed is our dedication to improving the overall health and wellness of people of all ages and stages in spirit, mind, and body. Every day, the centre is bustling with seniors socializing while improving their mobility, and children laughing and engaging in active play-based learning. There’s space for individuals of all fitness levels, and everyone is welcome.
