Below is a list of the current activities that are being offered. Check back often for additional activities. Advanced registration is required for each activity and space is very limited. Appropriate COVID-19 protection measures will be in place. All activities require a reusable cloth or disposable mask that covers the nose and mouth. Masks may only be removed during specific activities when instructed by staff. Hand sanitizer will be available and we ask that you stay home if you are feeling ill. Programs are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather or under direction by Federal, State or local order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

    ACES offers group activities, recreational programs and volunteer opportunities to Pima County adults age 50 and older. Our goal is to provide a variety of pleasurable experiences that will enrich and enhance the social, educational and physical well being of all who participate in ACES. ACES provides social interaction through games, luncheons with entertainment, day and overnight trips, theater presentations, movies and the opportunity to take part in community service projects. ACES encourages volunteerism as a form of recreation. Members are actively involved in collecting items for Youth on Their Own and provide assistance to schools. ACES provides baby bonnets for newborns at Northwest Hospital and volunteer for a number of county and city special events that are in need of assistance.
