Summer is here and the CLL instructors are ready to welcome you to their classes! Our Summer Session features our nine exercise classes–offered virtually–as well as our member led groups and in-person social events. Masks are recommended (not required) for in-person events.

The CLL program year runs the first Monday after Labor Day in September through the end of June. It is scheduled in three terms—Fall, Winter and Spring with a short break in between each. Participants sign up for CLL membership and pay a fee for each term; you can sign up anytime during the year. July and August are a separate Summer membership that includes exercise only.

The 2022 Summer Session begins on Monday, July 11, 2022
