Some of our residents’ favourite activities are led by residents, including the operation of “The Mad Trapper” pub, organization of our library, dinner parties, speaker series and many volunteer opportunities. Our residents also enjoy fitness classes—such as the popular Rhythm ‘n’ Moves exercise class—friendly competitions in the games room, live entertainment, cultural celebrations around the holidays, and fun themed dinners with fellow residents and family members. We also arrange fun outings to malls, cultural attractions, and farmers’ markets, and summer trips to the spectacular nearby mountains in Kananaskis and Banff.
