The Culpeper Wellness Foundation (CWF) was established in 2014 with the mission of improving the physical, behavioral and social health of the community. CWF includes Powell Wellness Center (PWC), the Free Clinic of Culpeper, and the former Culpeper Hospital Foundation as a new community outreach division. At PWC we are dedicated to helping you achieve the benefits of regular exercise and physical activity.

Research shows if a child doesn't learn to swim by the third grade, they likely never will. Sign your kids up for swim lessons, and if you don't know how to swim, sign yourself up too! PWC offers both group and private swim lessons based on the American Red Cross (ARC) Learn to Swim program. Sign up for swim lessons at the front desk, and find out more about learning to swim and being water aware in our Wellness Connection blog posts.
PWC offers child care services in the Kids' Corner, which provides a safe, clean, and engaging environment for your children. In addition, PWC has several programs for children, including swim lessons, activity camps, and an 8-week program called FITscripts for Kids. Keep an eye on the events calendar for seasonal activities for kids as well, such as winter sports conditioning, summer classes, and camps.
FITscripts is a physician-referral program designed for those who need to exercise but who may have a chronic condition or physical limitation such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, pulmonary disease, or orthopedic limitation that is preventing them from regular exercise. Have your doctor use our FITscripts program to prescribe "exercise as medicine" for you today.
PWC is pleased to offer massage services as a complement to your health and fitness routine. Massage therapy has a variety of health benefits, including relieving stress and muscle tension, providing greater joint flexibility and range of motion, promoting faster healing of muscles and ligaments, improving circulation, and reducing blood pressure.
