The Anchor Club

The Anchor Club is an adult day program, recreation and learning centre for adults with developmental disabilities. Based in Port Colborne, The Anchor Club strives to provide meaningful person centered life skills training, relationship building and an appreciation for community.

The Anchor Club is open Monday to Friday 9-4. The cost of the program includes activities and lunch. Members jointly decide what activities will be included on the schedule each month and a calendar is distributed.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday we are open to male members only. Each morning we offer a fitness support program at the YMCA (members must have a YMCA pass to participate) and every afternoon we participate in a recreational activity in the community. 

Tuesdays and Thursdays we are open to everyone. Each morning we enjoy the amenities available at the club and every afternoon we participate in a recreational activity in the community.

Ladies Night runs every Wednesday night. A flyer is circulated monthly with the list of upcoming activities.
