Adventures in Learning



Adventures in Learning classes are taught on various subjects by knowledgeable volunteer instructors. Classes meet on Thursdays for six weeks. There is a Fall Session and a Winter/Spring Session with events/trips planned throughout the year.


Sessions are led by class instructors who themselves are retired older adults or community experts who bring their special interests and backgrounds. 

Subjects cover a varied assortment of topics: computer and technology, finance, literature, creative writing, cultural appreciation, religion, “how-to,” current events, historical events and figures, foreign languages, and much more.

Community service projects are an important part of each Session. Giving back and working to make our community a better place to live is paramount to our senior living.


Here are some photos from the 2024 Winter Session
