Leisure Activities

Recreation provides a variety of programs focusing on enhancing a resident’s socialization, mental stimulation, physical ability, spiritual and emotional wellbeing.

The Recreation Department at Dykeland Lodge prides itself on offering a variety of therapeutic leisure opportunities. We provide both large and small and one to one leisure activities. The Recreation Department will also support residents with their self-directed leisure choices.

Each month we feature a main calendar of leisure events enhanced by numerous individual unit activity calendars. Our goal is to provide a variety of recreation programs to enrich the lives of our residents. Please note the monthly calendar is subject to change. If you have a suggestion or opportunity about the calendar, please contact Victoria Gagne, Director of Recreation at This email address is being protected from spambots.
