SENIOR PROGRAMS AT FWCC

Whoever coined the term the “sunset years” for retirement has clearly never met a modern senior. Many seniors now maintain busier schedules than when they were working full-time. And they’re having fun! We couldn’t agree more.

The Federal Way Community Center offers a full senior program with water- and land-based fitness activities, classes, contests, dancing, day trips and special events.
