Activity Haven – Through our Members’ Eyes

Activity Haven is a recreation centre for older adults (50+) serving Peterborough and surrounding areas. Activity Haven’s goal is to help fulfill the recreational needs of our members by providing a wide variety of fun and interesting activities. Through intellectual, physical, creative and social engagement, we encourage our members to be active and involved, to develop friendships and to maintain an independent and healthy lifestyle.

A focus of the centre is to provide a friendly, healthy and caring environment for older adults, where we treat each other with honesty, courtesy and respect.  We offer more than 80 programs, including both instructor led classes and casual drop-in activities, as well as numerous special events throughout the year. There’s something for everyone at Activity Haven!

This is the third year of Activity Haven’s participation in the SPARK Photo Festival. Our exhibit is titled: “Through Our Members’ Eyes”, and our objective is to showcase the “well-seasoned” photographic talents of our members. Our exhibitors range in age from their mid-60’s to early 90’s and, as in previous years, it has been wonderful to see the diversity and beauty of the images presented.

This year we are also including a small photo display to celebrate the beauty of the Queen Alexandra Community Centre, the grand old building that many of our members consider their “home away from home”!

Participation in SPARK has been a great opportunity to bring our members together to share their common interests in photography. We know that friendships will form which will last long after this year’s Photo Festival is over!
