How Can I Apply?

Applications are available through the online form, at the Pemberton and District Community Centre or download the PDF format application form. Complete one application per family and return it to the registration desk with proof of residency and proof of household income.

Take this opportunity to make a healthy lifestyle a priority for you and your family. 

What are the benefits of the LIFE Program?

  • 50% off 1 program per season per individual (some exceptions may apply)
  • One 10-time fitness centre pass per family per year 



Pemberton is committed to having every child and youth included in the sport and recreations programs and has partnered with Whistler Adaptive. Trained volunteer "buddies" are provided through Whistler Adaptive for kids who need a little extra support to have great sport experience.

If your child has diverse needs and/or struggles to participate in group programs, they will likely benefit from having a Whistler Adaptive buddy accompany them.
