The YMCA of the Chippewa Valley is proud to offer a variety of Active & Ageless programs committed to helping seniors maintain a healthy lifestyle and strengthen social ties. We encourage everyone to grow in the areas of physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. Our Active & Ageless land and water-based exercise classes promote fitness and well-being while fostering friendships and camaraderie. Volunteer opportunities and social events build relationships and community ties that can last a lifetime. Gathering places are available at our branches for those who want to relax after exercising and chat over a cup of coffee with old friends or new friends. Maximize your membership and take full advantage of what your Y has to offer.

**Although the programs and presentations listed out below are targeted to our Active & Ageless Community (YMCA Members ages 50+) these offerings are available to ALL YMCA Members.**
