Active Older Adults at the Walzem Y

ACTIVE OLDER ADULTS


Active Older Adults at the Y- The YMCA of Greater San Antonio offers our active older adults an opportunity to increase their physical activity, enjoy social interaction, and learn healthy lifestyle skills. Active Older Adults programs include water exercise, day trips, gentle yoga and more.

Silver Sneakers Participants- Silver Sneakers allows our older adults to take charge of their health by participating in physical activities. Classes offer our seniors low impact and joint friendly sessions involving cardio, flexibility, strength training, and coordination exercises. Lightweights, elastic tubing, and stability balls are incorporated with an opportunity for modification based on ability. Classes are FREE for members.


Note: Some insurance providers will cover a Senior's monthly membership fees as a preventative health benefit. Consult your provider to find out if you qualify. To learn more about the various health plans available to you, please visit the  Welcome Center.

Summer Day Camp


Holiday Camps

During the holidays (Thanksgiving,Winter Break, Spring Break) are you wondering where your children will go while they are out of school?  The YMCA of Greater San Antonio provides a nurturing and caring environment for all. Holiday camp is a fun and happy place for your children to be during the day when school is out. Campers will enjoy fun activities, field trips, creative art projects, group games, and much more.

None offered at this time. 



Specialty Camps

Our summer specialty camps provide fun activities, games and more. Specialty camps typically do not run every day of the week, and they end earlier than our summer day camps . These camps are perfect for families who are looking for fun activities for their children during the summer but do not require all-day care. Specialty Camps are held at the Walzem Family YMCA facility unless otherwise posted. 

None offered at this time. 


Summer Day Camp

Summer Day Camp offers benefits similar to traditional camp—new experiences, physical activity and character development—but allows campers to return home each afternoon.  Y Day Camp boasts weekly field trips and age-appropriate activities designed to help children, ages 5 to 13, develop self-confidence and personal empowerment.  Registration for day camp is available for the entire summer, for the weeks needed, or even for a day.

Summer Day Camps are NOT held at the Walzem Family YMCA, but at a site nearby

Walzem Family Events



FAMILY EVENTS

The Y has always been a place where families come together to have a good time; participate in a variety of fun activities; share, communicate and strengthen their relationships; and meet other families. Family Events are usually scheduled for a weekend evening and can be either structured or free-flowing. Activities include mixers, games, arts and crafts, family fitness, games, volunteer opportunities and family discussions over refreshments. Example events include Fall Festivals, Cookies with Santa, Healthy Kids' Day and more! 

For announcements on upcoming family events, follow us on Facebook OR sign up for our newsletter.

FitPath at the Boerne Y

FitPath powered by ActivTrax

WHAT IT IS

FitPath is a FREE program for all Y members designed to help you reach your wellness goals. On your initial appointment, a YMCA Wellness Coach will discuss your goals, review all the options available to you, set up your ActivTrax profile and help create a program that’s right for you. Follow up appointments will be available to help ensure you stay on track and are achieving your goals.


WHAT IT’S NOT

FitPath is not a high-pressure sales pitch for personal training or a medical appointment where you’ll be poked and prodded. You don’t have to worry about being uncomfortable or embarrassed; you won’t be asked to do anything you don’t want to do.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Everyone! Whether you’re new to exercise or in tip-top shape, FitPath is designed to help everyone, whatever your goals, exercise or activity preferences may be. Whether you want to lift weights, take classes, swim, play sports or have some other interests in mind, we want to make sure we do our part in helping you get started on the right path.


WHY IT’S IMPORTANT

Members who meet with a Wellness Coach within their first two weeks of joining are 6X more likely to achieve their goals. Let’s make sure you're one of them!

The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits gained through early exposure to fitness are far greater than just physical health.


HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?
