About Claymore Senior Center, Inc.

The Claymore Center is moving forward! We are progressive, innovative and dedicated to changing the way senior centers are perceived. We have become a dynamic community center that draws in multiple generations of older adults by offering multifaceted programs. The Claymore Senior Center Inc. has served the Wilmington and surrounding New Castle County population for over 30 years. Our center has become a one-stop information hub linking community members to resources for housing, transportation and other needed services. By being a hub and bringing people together in one place, we promote, encourage and inspire the health, education, creativity and well-being of the mature community.  

We offer an abundance of social gatherings to minimize isolation, Shuffleboard, Indoor Bocci, Wii Bowling, Bridge and Pinochle, a Bowling League, Yoga & Healthy Lifestyles Classes, Quilting and Monthly Craft classes, ongoing Diabetes Education & Support, on site medical services and continuing education classes. Our fitness classes and our fitness center are designed with older adults in mind. We offer classes for all levels of fitness from Arthritis land exercise class to Zumba Gold.    

Most important, our leader's role is the creation of focused priorities to maximize limited resources in order to meet the increasingly diverse community needs. Our efforts to address the challenges presented by a growing older population are rooted in the deepest principle of our aging services philosophy: to promote the independence of seniors by providing services, where they want to be served and where it is most cost-effective to serve them in our center and communities.
