How far will you go? Fast or slow doesn’t matter.

Non-Competitive Walking –Walking is good medicine! It builds “staying power” and improves heart and circulatory system health, lowers blood pressure, and reduces the risk of stroke. Walking on a regular basis can significantly improve your quality of life. Even a few minutes of walking per day can get you on the road to improved health.

What better venue for a nice walk than our hallways? For fun and fitness on the opening day of the Seniors Games, we’ve got a full kilometre marked out for anyone wanting to go the distance (special recognition for the distances completed). Admire the resident created Love Lane art work and peruse the Love Letters that line the hallways.  With lively music to keep you motivated, you may wish to dance your way through the halls!

All participants receive a complimentary t-shirt to wear during the week and ribbons to display their badges of completion.

Bowling will take place in the majestic theatres.

Wii Bowling – Whether you are an expert or wanting to try something new, join us for an exciting and challenging bowling experience. Wii bowling is a remarkable video game that provides fun, laughter, and exercise! It lets you play a game of bowling in front of a large format television screen – move about, test your coordination, and compete against other bowlers.

Ladder Golf – It’s said that early games used 2 golf balls joined by a string. Whether you know it as ladder ball, horsey golf, monkey ball, or ball rope, Ladder Golf is fun and easy to play! The object of the game is to wrap your two balls attached by string (bolas), at a target called the ladder. The ladder consists of 3 steps, a top, middle and a bottom step.

You need physical activity at every age and stage of life! Get a more focused mind, a stronger, and fitter body by playing Ladder Golf.

Medals – Local Gold, Silver & Bronze medals will be presented in each Residence at a special presentation end of day. All medalists will be entered in the national finals with the top three in the nation receiving National Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals during Closing Ceremonies.

Boulez-Vous? Summer Camp rolls into the Seniors Games with Pétanque.

Pétanque atout – This low impact sports requires concentration and strategy. Also known as boules, the traditionally French social sport encourages camaraderie and gets you moving. A wonderful centerpiece to any camp or social gathering, the goal of the game is for each team to get the most boules closest to the but/cochon.

The aim of the game is to be the first player/team to score thirteen points. Points are scored by having one or more of your boules closer to the target than those of your opponent, after all boules have been thrown.

Camp activities – Sit & Stretch at sunrise, attend a World of Bees talk, watch a Chef Demonstration, and play a game of Would You Rather. What day at camp would be complete without a ghost story?

Medals – Local Gold, Silver & Bronze medals will be presented in each Residence at a special presentation end of day. All medalists will be entered in the national finals with the top three in the nation receiving National Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals during Closing Ceremonies.

A simple game with big benefits.

Sand/Bean Bag Toss – Relax, get social, and feel the satisfaction of watching the bean bag slide home. There’s never a dull moment. A fun staple at any summer gathering, tossing a simple bean bag is an effective means of exercising your body and maintaining motor skills. By aiming at a target, hand-eye coordination and throwing skills are put to the test.

Camp activities – Try Sunrise Zumba, learn about Mi’kmaq language through colouring with Marcus Gosse, Sing-along with a local entertainer, and watch a romantic movie.

Medals – Local Gold, Silver & Bronze medals will be presented in each Residence at a special presentation end of day. All medalists will be entered in the national finals with the top three in the nation receiving National Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals during Closing Ceremonies.

Stretch your mental muscles with passive sports.

Both physical and mental activity are integral parts of overall wellness. The ASC Seniors Games have been created to stimulate both. Unique to each residence, competitive card games and board game activities have been scheduled so that there is a little something for everyone.

Jeopardy Challenge – Welcome to everyone’s favourite question and answer game! Did you know that the Jeopardy theme song is called “Think”?  Challenge your memory in history, sports, food, nature, or music. The biggest challenge will be resisting the urge to shout out the answers!

Medals – Local Gold, Silver & Bronze medals will be presented in each Residence at a special presentation end of day.
