Welcome to Peninsula Elder College!

Elder College Courses are different than traditional general interest courses. These courses are general interest programs for adults 50 years and better who still want to learn!

A Volunteer Advisory Committee works hard at developing courses for you. The courses are offered by volunteer instructors with a passion for their subject. This partnership lowers the cost of the programs for the community members.

Your yearly membership allows adults 50+ to access these low cost courses. Course semesters run September - December and January - June.

Purchase your membership for $15 through reception at Panorama Recreation! Your Elder College Membership will expire one year from the date of purchase.

We are having a difficulty to load your requested events, please come back at a later time.

In April 2016, Panorama Recreation Centre received a federal government New Horizons Grant for Arts and Health Programming for Adults 50+. As a result, we have also been able to enhance activities for our Elder College Members. Accomplishments include:

  • Hiring a part-time assistant for program development
  • Purchasing a new kiln including upgrading the electrical wiring for the pottery studio
  • Engaging new instructors and where feasible covering the cost of arts & crafts material
  • Establishing a partnership with Parkland and Stelly’s Secondary School students to offer a unique art opportunity for Elder College member
