Adventures in Learning

Adventures in Learning is a lifelong learning program for adults who want to continue growing, engage in the community, and make new friends.
 
The program is volunteer driven and meets 40 Fridays per year in 10-week sessions. Each session offers a wide variety of classes and activities from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., including discussions, physical activities, speakers, and creative classes. You can attend a different class each hour, or stay for just one class if you’re short on time.
