PATHWAYS & POSSIBILITIES TO
A RICH & FULFILLING LIFE
At Medford Leas, there is no shortage of activities and opportunities
to choose from across two distinct campuses: Medford and Lumberton.
The beautiful arboretum setting on both campuses offers a unique blend
of public gardens, extensive trails, horticultural collections and
preserved natural areas amid private residences.
FOLLOW YOUR PASSIONS &
DISCOVER NEW ONES
At Medford Leas, endless opportunities abound to participate in hobbies and pastimes.
Diverse residents not only participate in activities, but also plan them: the Medford Leas Resident Association directs over 90 activities and committees, events, and interest groups. Residents organize trips to concerts, sightseeing, birding, plan forums, volunteer, maintain trails and woodlands, and even produce a literary journal and two newsletters – one for each campus. All these possibilities for a fulfilling life are enriched by our commitment to Quaker principles, focused on nurturing the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual well-being of each resident.
All residents on both campuses are members of the Medford Leas Residents Association.
FITNESS & AQUATICS
SWIM, WALK, BIKE, OR RUN…

Both campuses feature fitness centers staffed with personal trainers. Other recreation resources include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, canoe and kayak launches, biking/activity paths, exercise studios, tennis courts, personal trainers and an array of wellness programs.
Aquatics is also a key part of our fitness routine at Medford Leas. With a heated indoor pool on the Medford campus and a heated outdoor pool at the Lumberton campus, we are able to offer a complete variety of aquatics programs, aerobics, water-walking and volleyball.
