  • Specialty Health Programs appropriate for a variety of conditions (cardiac, arthritic, COPD and more) recognized by Interior Health and supervised by Certified Exercise Physiologists.
  • A wide array of engaging group fitness programs for all ages and abilities.
  • Access to the Kelowna Family YMCA and to YMCAs in other cities across Canada.

Everyone is welcome!

It is our mission to ensure anyone who wishes to join our YMCA family can do so regardless of their financial situation. If you or someone you know cannot afford to pay the full price of a membership, we have a solution to overcome that barrier. Ask a YMCA staff member about financial assistance.

YMCA of Okanagan is an authorized Exercise is Medicine Canada® member. When your doctor uses this prescription, your YMCA membership is considered a medical expense for tax purposes (see your tax specialist for more information). Ask your doctor for the Exercise is Medicine prescription to the YMCA.
