  • YMCA Annual General Meeting and Recognition Celebration

    Join us as we summarize our accomplishments in 2019 and recognize our volunteers for their longevity and ongoing excellence. All YMCA members, donors, volunteers, staff and supporters are invited to attend our virtual presentation.


  • YMCA Healthy Kids Day

    Healthy Kids Day has been cancelled this year to prevent the spread of COVID-19. For parents and their little ones to connect with healthy resources during this time, we invite parents to join the YMCA Early Years community Facebook group for engaging content (like live storytime sessions, crafts and music) and resource-sharing.

  • YMCA Cycle for Strong Kids

    YMCA Cycle For Strong Kids has been postponed until Fall 2020 to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We ask that you stay with us—as sponsors and participants—as the funds generated from this event will be needed now more than ever. Team registrations and donations are still being accepted.

  • Wilson M. Beck Charity Golf Tournament

    Hosted by the Kelowna Golf and Country Club on their world-class course, this yearly event attracts over 100 golfers from BC interested in taking part in a few swings for a great cause. With the help of YMCA of Okanagan and community volunteers, registrants will enjoy 18 holes of golf, lunch and dinner, along with incredible prizes!
