With the New Year upon us, we would like to take the time to share with you our reflections from this year. The Wilfred R. Cameron Wellness Center had a fantastic year, and it was all made possible by those who support us and the hard work of our amazing team! From pool renovations to winning 2019 Best of the Best, we’ve had an exciting year and hope you enjoy reflecting on it with us!
Our pool underwent major renovations this year thanks to a total investment of $220,000 from the Washington Health System. This was an exciting time for the Center, with the pool renovation being the first major renovation since the locker room shower renovation project in 2014.
The renovation included replacing the drains to keep the pool deck safe and clean, repainting the ceiling and walls, and updating signage. The pool deck was also upgraded to a safer, high-quality deck material with a higher than standard co-efficiency.
Additional investment was made in the Center with the purchased new furniture, weights, and PRECOR ellipticals. With the support of our own Washington Health System, we continue to be a place where the community can upgrade their lives.

The Most Successful Summer Camp To-date
During the 2019 KidZone Summer Camp, campers experienced new adventures from the Pittsburgh ZooMobile and Carnegie Science Center to sound bath meditation and spin class. The excitement from both parents and campers for these events, mixed with appearances made by special guests, reinforced a growing momentum for our Summer Camps.
Biggest Winner Member Cookbook
The Wellness Center held its annual Biggest Winner Competition and this past year, we decided to change things up a little bit with the emphasis of the program geared more towards nutrition and how healthy eating can impact one’s fitness goals. The Registered Dietitians wanted to encourage participants by submitting healthy recipes and motivational quotes/tips that they strive for while going through a weight loss journey. The recipes and tips were compiled into a Biggest Winner Cookbook, which participants of the program all received.
A Positive Employee Outlook
