Each spring, local residents over the age of 50 are invited to participate in the Outer Banks Senior Games. Achievement is recognized with gold, silver, and bronze awards and the privilege of representing Dare County in the statewide North Carolina Senior Games with the possibility to advance to the National Senior Games. While the program honors personal and team accomplishments, the Outer Banks Senior Games mission is to promote healthy active lifestyles for seniors in our community.
