Seniors recreation programs – City of Guelph

The City of Guelph offers both registered programs and drop-in programs. Registered programs reserve your spot for several consecutive weeks in an activity. Drop-in programs provide no long-term commitment and offer flexible attendance by paying as your play with single admission fees.

Check out our recreation and fitness passes to take full advantage of our programming options.

Registration for the Winter 2023 program session (January-March) begins Wednesday, December 7 at 7:30 a.m.

Activity groups – Guelph Wellington Seniors Association (GWSA)

The Guelph Wellington Seniors Association (GWSA) is a charitable organization that empowers 55+ seniors to lead active, healthy, fulfilling lives.

Activity groups are created based on the interests of our members and are led by GWSA volunteers. Come out and try a group for free, and if you decide it is for you, become a member of the GWSA. Activity groups charge a small ‘pay as you play’ or set an annual fee.
