If you have never visited the Draper Senior Center before, you’re in for a surprise!
The state of the art facility offers a wealth of resources for older adults; we have an unparalleled combination of programs, workshops, classes, and services for independent, active and engaged seniors. Draper Senior Center continues to distinguish itself as the new and innovative senior center of today. Around the city people are taking notice of the Center’s significant achievements and building design offering not only inside activities but outside sports areas as well.
The Center features spectacular vistas from all areas of the Center, and a dining area extended to the outdoors where participants can enjoy their meals next to the beautiful pond, with views of the mountains and Draper City Park. The café style kitchen offers nutritious, freshly prepared meals by Chef Katrina Monday through Friday.
Draper Senior Center has earned the status of National Accreditation by meeting established senior center standards of excellence developed by National Council of Aging and the National Institute of Senior Centers.
The numerous activities and kitchen support offered at this Center are staffed by countless volunteers.
Volunteering is the “life blood” of the Senior Center playing a critical role in delivering quality programming as well as providing options for fit, active and engaged seniors. The Center has a wide variety of opportunities for all ages to volunteer their time and talents. As the gap between available resources and the needs of seniors continues to grow, Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services believes the role of volunteering is important and we are always looking to add new programs at the Center. To find the volunteer opportunity that best suits your needs, skills, and time availability, simply talk to the staff.
The Center offers resources provided by Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services. We also offer a comprehensive range of programs to enlighten, educate and enrich the lives of active adults age 60 and over. We consider the Center akin to a “Senior Campus”: an abundant and evolving selection of classes, educational seminars and special activities are offered. For those wanting to explore their creative side, the Center offers opportunities in art, crafts, and music.
We are proud of our health and physical activity classes that include many different types of exercise opportunities: Yoga, Tai Chi, EnhanceFitness® and Zumba group classes. There is an individual exercise workout room with Keiser equipment, SciFit treadmills, and Nustep recumbent bikes. We also offer access to balance pads, yoga mats, exercise steps, hand and wrist weights, as well as outdoor exercise equipment and two outdoor pickle ball courts.
