Who we are
The Mirror Lake Centre is one of the finest recreational and social facilities in Alberta. This is the home of the Camrose and District Senior Centre Society.
What we do
We help seniors reach their maximum potential by providing physical, mental and spiritual wellness to the senior community.
In November of 1980, a Board of Directors was organized to represent the eight seniors organizations that existed at that time. These eight organizations were each operating independently from various facilities in Camrose.
The mission of that organizing Board was to build and operate a multi-use facility within the City of Camrose for use by Camrose and District seniors. It was accomplished with the generous help of the Federal, Provincial, County and City governments.
Construction began in September of 1983 and the building was officially opened on November 19, 1984. Since that time, the Society has provided a variety of programs and services to the membership and others in our community.
The Camrose and District Senior Centre Society has an office in Mirror Lake Centre, 5415 – 49 Avenue, Camrose. The Society is run strictly by volunteers, and sponsors 22 different clubs at the facility. There is something to do in the Senior Centre Society for everyone who is 50 years or over. There are bridge clubs, three different dance clubs, music jam, scrabble, cribbage, canasta, euchre, stick rummy, table tennis, pickle ball, floor shuffleboard, floor curling, Alberta 55 plus, Military Whist, Cam-Roses, the Golden Tones and a Pool club. Members of the various clubs work at the front desk to offer information to anyone who comes in. Our volunteer hours are from Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to noon. Our office is closed from July 1 to August 15.
The membership fee for a year in the society is $15 and the various clubs charge a small fee for attending each time.
We offer a great place to meet friends and acquaintances and a place to make new friends as well.
We are sorry but we do not rent the facility out to the public for private parties.
