Welcome to The Wallaceburg Adult Activity Centre. Often referred to as The Senior Centre, the WAAC is where adult life over 45 meets with active living in Wallaceburg.
UPDATE ON COVID-19
Unfortunately, the spread of COVID-19 has affected the Wallaceburg Adult Activity Centre, just as it has affected everything else in the last year. Due to government restrictions, we have had to temporarily suspend all of our programs and activities.
Once we begin to reopen, we will have a limited number of activities available – billiards, fitness classes, and use of our exercise rooms. As restrictions are lifted, membership will allow you access to many programs and activities at and away from the center. We are also currently investigating ways to develop programs virtually so you can still connect with your friends, even if you can’t be with them in person. Please check back often for reopening updates and read below to learn about all of the programs the Centre usually runs.
Why Join the Wallaceburg Adult Activity Centre?
We know that active living is what keeps us young in heart, mind, and soul. Here at the Wallaceburg Adult Activity Centre we have many programs and resources to keep you active. Whether you are new to the area or a long-time resident, we are sure there is an activity or two that will fit your active lifestyle.
Trying to find a way to keep fit? Need a group to get you going? Our fitness classes may be what you are looking for. We have many different programs to help you obtain your goal, from Yoga (including Chair Yoga), to Cardio and Strengthening classes, to Pilates, or Essentrics-Aging Backwards. We are sure there is a fitness class that is right for you, with knowledgeable instructors and for the low cost of $4.00 a class for members or $8.00 for non-members. Please note that pre-registration and prepayment for monthly sessions is required.
Looking for a good place to work out? Look no further! Our exercise equipment will keep you walking, running, rowing, or cycling into fitness. The Exercise Rooms are open to all members for a minimal donation of $1.00 per visit to help keep our equipment in tip top condition, so everyone’s fitness needs are met. Just remember to bring some indoor workout shoes as the dirt from outdoor shoes will make a mess of our machines!
If you are Crafty/Artistic and looking for like minded people, we have it here for you. From card-making, to painting classes, to our writing club. The costs are always minimal for members. We are looking at expanding our arts and crafts program offerings in the future, so if there is something you are interested in, message us and let us know! Our programs are currently suspended due to COVID restrictions, but we will have them up and running as soon as possible!
The Wallaceburg Adult Activity Centre has regular events like billiards, card games, in house and off-site bingos, Wii bowling, karaoke and much more!
We also regularly host monthly birthday luncheons, Christmas dinners, golf outings, and bus trips.
