Resident-run programs and activities

Residents at Kendal~Crosslands Communities coordinate, manage, and create their community and the programs they enjoy.  It is one of the many unique features of the community – a resident engaged life.  Club participation and committee involvement continually provide an outstanding substance of life.  If there is something missing, you have the freedom to create it.  Feel free to join in and transform your experience of aging.

The following clubs and programs are just some of the regular happenings on the campus:
