Community Centre Programs

 

KinVillage offers programming through our Community Centre to benefit our community’s older adults. Covering a broad range of KinVillage Photos Sept 8th (42)interests; from the very popular adult education program, ElderCollege Delta; to social options like snooker and dances; and the wide variety of physical, intellectual and artistic options, at KinVillage, adults meet, try something new and develop interests.

The success of the KinVillage Community Centre is driven by volunteer involvement. We provide a place for people to gather, plan, create and even lead the programs in which to be active. Along with these programs, they enjoy the wonderful café and the gently-used clothing boutique (open weekdays) that supplies very affordable options for all to enjoy. Here is an overview of what is available:
