Fun in the Sun During the Golden Years: Outdoor Companionship Activities

Activities for Seniors  |  August 10, 2023

The Golden Years are a time for leisurely exploring the great outdoors. Sure, you may have a few extra wrinkles and a whole lot of wisdom, but don’t let that stop you! Who says age has to slow you down? In fact, it’s time to grab your walking stick (or go find one in the woods) and embark on a delightful journey of outdoor companionship activities. We are almost entirely certain that’ll have you laughing, bonding, and enjoying life like never before.

Bocce Ball

Who knew that a bunch of colorful balls and a simple patch of grass could lead to such epic showdowns? After all, Bocce ball isn’t just a game; it’s a cutthroat battle of wit, strategy, and precision. Picture a group of seniors strategizing their throws like seasoned generals, all while exchanging sassy one-liners that would make a stand-up comedian proud. “Watch out Gabe, I’ve tossed grenades bigger than these bad boys!”

Trail Tales

Take a hike with a pal, and let your imagination run wild! Each step becomes a page in an impromptu storytelling session where every senior contributes a sentence or two to create an ever-evolving tale. Who knew that Alfred had such a knack for weaving mysteries involving brown bears and missing picnic baskets? Go for the fresh air, bust stay for the creativity and camaraderie.

Park Bench Philosophers

Just grab a bench, a thermos of tea (Earl Grey, hot), and a gang of wise seniors, and you’ve got yourself a modern day symposium. Conversations range from the meaning of life to deciphering the mysteries of the modern world. Ever wondered why teenager meet up, stand around in a circle and then just text each other? Sure, it won’t solve all of the world’s problems. But, it is almost guaranteed that there will be a few “back in my day” stories that’ll keep those precious memories alive!


Have you ever sat in the middle of a crowded place and just watched people go on about their business? Try it some time. You will find that their actions range from the expectedly mundane to the unexpectedly outrageous! You’ll likely see a vanity fair of people doing dumb things to take selfies at awkward moments. Or better yet, your curious gaze might find a lady pushing a tiny baby stroller just past you – as its furry passenger pops its head out and BARKS!

So, in conclusion, whoever said that aging means slowing down clearly is misinformed and/or uninformed. They just haven’t met a group of spirited seniors on a mission for outdoor fun and companionship. Justifiably, these activities prove that life after retirement isn’t about watching the clock tick, but about embracing the fresh air, each other, and the laughter and good times that comes with all of it. So, go ahead and get outdoors; after all, the great Canadian winter is not too far away now.
