Kids Day Celebration at Chesapeake Shores

It’s back to school time! So to celebrate the end of summer, Chesapeake Shores held its first Kid’s Day! Our staff was able to bring their children in for a back to school party with games, prizes, crafts, popcorn, snow cones, and a DJ with great party music. Residents, staff and children all enjoyed eating, dancing and having fun with one another.

We love having intergenerational events for our residents, as it is an opportunity for our residents and children to learn and bond. We are always looking for children or youth groups to come in and interact or do an activity with our residents.

If you are interested, please contact Kayla Hanson, QOL Director at (301) 863-7244 ext 123.

Blue Crabs Game with Chesapeake Shores

Let’s go Blue Crabs! One of our neighborhoods was able to attend a Blue Crabs’ home game this past Friday.

We held a raffle fundraiser to raise the money for tickets, and picked a home game to attend. Boy, was it an amazing game!

The Blue Crabs crushed the Camden Riversharks and ended the night with a fireworks show. The residents had an amazing time, and we are looking forward to the next baseball trip!

Avoid Tick Bites

Ticks can transmit diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever or Lyme Disease. During the hot summer months we need to avoid direct contact with ticks by avoiding wooded or bushy areas.  If you are in the woods stay to the center of trails. Wear tick repellant. After you have been outside, shower as soon as you come inside. Conduct a full body tick check on yourself and your children.  Be sure to look behind your knees, between your legs, around your waist, inside the belly button and your hair.

If you have been bite by a tick, or there is a possibility that you have been, and you develop fever, chills, aches and pains, or a rash, see your health care provider.

Senior Olympics at Chesapeake Shores






Chesapeake Shores held its 3rd Annual Senior Olympics Event! Originally scheduled for June 4th, we were rained out and had to move it to June 9th. A total of nine facilities came from around the area to compete in the event.

Every year, more and more teams attend and people from the community come to assist and volunteer. It was our largest crowd to date! Residents, staff, families and volunteers were all able to compete in and watch the events while our DJ and band, Harmonies of Faith, played great music. We served popcorn and cotton candy to our guests, and we even brought a photo booth!

It was great to see all the facilities and community organizations come together and have a great time. Many memories were made, and the residents are already planning for next year!
