Somers Point is proud to be home to an active Senior Citizen’s Center, located on the corner of Massachusetts Ave. and Ambler Road. Ongoing activities take place including card games and light exercising groups. The Center also hosts regulation-size shuffleboard courts in its backyard. Playing shuffleboard is a wonderfully fun activity for our older adults; the group meets every Tuesday morning throughout the summer months.
In addition, the CER Office offers seasonal events, activities and trips for seniors in the area. Events include bus trips to the theater, luncheons at local restaurants, wellness programs, musical acts and more. The activities offered are a great way to stay connected with old friends or make some new friends!
