Here at the YMCA of Metropolitan Columbus, GA, we are bringing active older adults together for camaraderie, fellowship, and fun with the creation of our 'Senior Program'! From a weekly walking club to monthly field trips & more. We are excited about this new offering to help strengthen our Senior population in mind, body, and spirit!

Walking Club

You are invited to join us every Wednesday for a Walking Club.
