About the Senior Games

Orange County Senior Games are coordinated by Orange County Department on Aging and the Recreation and Parks Departments of Carrboro and Chapel Hill. They are part of the National Senior Games, a year-round health promotion program for adults ages 55 plus. Each spring, thousands of North Carolinians compete at local events. Winners of local events move on to compete at the state-level and those winners then go on to compete nationally. For more information about NC games, visit North Carolina Senior Games.

National Senior Health and Fitness Day Celebration: Every year, on the last Wednesday in May, the Department on Aging hosts activities in honor of National Senior Health and Fitness Day.
