Social & Leisure Activities
For seniors who like to stay physically and socially active, SRDA Recreation offers a variety of social and leisure activities for those age 50 and older.
At SRDA, you'll find a variety of affordable fitness classes, including strength training, yoga, chair aerobics, and line dancing. In addition, we offer classes for computers, acrylic, sketching, oil and watercolor painting, and other fun, inexpensive workshops for arts and crafts.
On a daily basis we offer pool tables, free exercise machines, a big-screen TV with movie players, and a computer room, with internet access. Or, you might enjoy one or more of our weekly game groups, such as bridge, pinochle, chess, Scrabble, dominoes, and Mah Jong. For our more crafty seniors, we also host monthly and biweekly groups for quilting and knitting.
Matter of Balance
Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.
A Matter of Balance includes eight two-hour sessions for a small group led by a trained facilitator. This nationally recognized program was developed at the Roybal Center at Boston University.
During the class, participants learn to:
- View falls as controllable
- Set goals for increasing activity
- Make changes to reduce fall risk at home
- Exercise to increase strength and balance
In addition to these ongoing activities, SRDA Recreation holds a monthly social with refreshments and entertainment – providing the chance to socialize, and make new friends. We also offer fun, affordable group day trips – including Cripple Creek, regional festivals, museums, and musical and cultural events.
The friendly staff at SRDA Recreation welcomes you, and anyone age 50 or older, to call or stop by any weekday to enjoy our programs and activities.
