Center for Active Living

Center for Active Living (CAL)The Center for Active Living (CAL) is a wellness center dedicated to keeping older adults active, independent and thriving. We offer unique learning opportunities, exciting trips and a variety of social, cultural, recreational, and health-related classes tailored to adults over 50. The Center is located in the heart of Athens, GA, a lively college town that was also named by Forbes as one of the Best Places to Retire in the U.S.

The Center offers two concurrent programs designed to meet your needs and interests. Both programs offer a mix of health, educational and recreational programming as well as trips and events.

You’ll find an extensive roster of dance, exercise, balance enhancement and fitness classes available to keep you moving and shaking. New to town, looking to meet new people or sample all the area has to offer? Our popular trips take us to cultural and historical attractions, performances and other points of interest both locally and further afield. You can find our full catalogue in the back of ACCA’s quarterly magazine, Connections.
