LIVE HEALTHY, AGE GRACEFULLY
Today, older adults are more health conscious than ever before. The Kettle Moraine YMCA offers seniors in Washington and Ozaukee counties the opportunity to maintain a healthy lifestyle and healthy relationships through land and water exercise programs, social and learning events, and volunteer opportunities. Our healthy aging exercise classes promote fitness and well-being while fostering friendships and camaraderie. Our volunteer opportunities and social events help build lasting relationships and community ties.

The Y is one place that offers many kinds of connections—whether it’s through water fitness, a social club, or a volunteer program, the Y helps senior adults remain active and vital contributors to our communities.
