Additional Information about the Champlain Senior Center

The Champlain Senior Center, founded in 1990, supports the independence and well-being of older adults, enhances their dignity and self-respect, and promotes their participation in all aspects of community life.

In 2016, we began to manage the Champlain Senior Center, a congregate meal site location. At BPRW, we understand that seniors are the largest growing population in the Burlington area. We will not only continue to support senior activities, but we will strive to offer trending programs that enhance the lives of all involved participants.

For over twenty years, the Champlain Senior Center has provided a rich array of nutritional, educational, health, social and recreational programs to Chittenden County residents age 50 and over. Activities range from crafts to cooking and writing. For more information contact the Champlain Senior Center at (802) 316-1510 directly.
