Community Programs

It’s no secret that we love our community. We want to give back to that community.

Heritage Community Fitness & Rehabilitation Centre has created a number of programs that allow us to show our gratitude and provide support to those around us. We also regularly host Carleton Place fundraisers for community organizations.

Scholarship Program
We offer a scholarship fund to extend financial assistance to local students who are enrolled in a post-secondary program. This program awards successful applicants with a $1000 scholarship towards the cost of their education. Learn more.

Growing into Real Leaders (G.I.R.L.)
Created for schools, girl’s clubs, and sports teams, our free 1-hour G.I.R.L. workshop is designed to bring awareness to young girls about the unrealistic – and sometimes unhealthy – pressures in our society pertaining to body image and self-esteem. The workshop guides the girls to identify what is realistic for them and provides them with the tools to deal with associated stressors. Learn more.

Fit Club for Girls
Fit Club for Girls is an after-school program for girls ages 9-12 hosted by Heritage Community Fitness & Rehabilitation Centre. Learn more.

Mindful Movement and Me
Led by former CFL athlete and Grey Cup winner Alex Mateas, the Mindful Movement and Me youth program provides kids with the opportunity to develop an appropriate foundation for a healthy life, both physically and socially. Learn more.
