Health, Fitness and Community

Join our community to connect with others (from 6 ft away), find motivation and feel your very best. At the Y, we believe that physical activity is the key to living a long, healthy, independent lifestyle. Whether you are 20 or 80, the Y offers many ways to get moving and build healthy habits.

The YMCA-YWCA of Vancouver Island has 2 health and fitness locations.  A Y Membership is required to access these locations.  To learn about Y Membership click here.


The Y follows all PHO orders & restrictions.  Please review the Know Before You Go page for the most recent changes to your Y.


The Y Outdoor Centre, home of Camp Thunderbird, is nestled in the Sooke Foothills.  At the Y Outdoor Centre we believe that high-quality mentorship, small group experiences, time spent being physically active in natural spaces, democratic group living and community service are key elements in the healthy growth and development of young people.
