Clubs and Activities to Match Your Interests

Over 250 clubs meet regularly at Riderwood! There are groups for those who enjoy singing, dancing, hiking, reading, or connecting with fellow veterans.  You can garden alongside your neighbors, have a stimulating political debate over coffee, or help plan a group trip to Rome. With so many options, you can get involved in as much—or as little—as you like.

Here’s a small sample of the activities taking place at Riderwood. Ask for a full list of clubs and classes when you schedule your Riderwood visit.
