Senior Programs

Senior Programs provide a wide variety of recreation activities for seniors, ages 60 years and older (although younger participants are always welcome!). Activities currently focus on health and fitness but we hope to broaden that spectrum in the future. For more information on Senior Programs please click HERE to visit the homepage of the Lake County Senior Center. Most programming is FREE unless otherwise indicated.
