The McCall Senior Center provides a place for seniors to enjoy nutrition, health, social and educational programs and a friendly atmosphere.
Our center is active in community affairs and provides quality services and programs through nutrition, Meals on Wheels, information on social and educational programs and recreational activities supporting senior’s independence and encouraging their continued involvement within our community. The center welcomes those persons who are not yet considered “seniors”, but individuals who add to our programs with new vigor and ideas. We provide hot meals twice a week to our members and freshly made meals for delivery through our Meals on Wheels program.
We are the only Senior Center in the town of McCall and we are the community disaster center due to our building size and availability of our kitchen.
Receiving a good meal at the Senior Center provides a way for seniors to enjoy the companionship of their peers and to enrich their health with a nutritionally balanced, well prepared meal. During the summer our attendance for evening meals averages around 60, while in winter months the average attendance is 25-30, as snowbirds leave for warmer temperatures.
Meals on Wheels (“MOW”) is a community service-based program that delivers hot, nutritious meals to the homes of the elderly with the help of willing and dedicated volunteers from the community. The MOW programs help elderly or disabled individuals who are unable to prepare their own meals to stay connected to their communities, to remain healthy and to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. The MOW program has been organized in McCall for over 12 years. With humble beginnings in the Senior Center kitchen, the service has grown to deliver over 1200 meals every year.
The McCall Senior Center provides a great atmosphere for people to enjoy each other’s company and it provides many educational presentations and opportunities. Once a month we hold an Ear Clinic and twice a month a Foot Clinic. We have a food pantry for those in need and plenty of space for games and relaxation. Other activities we host include: live music for dinners, a Winter Carnival Pancake Breakfast and Senior Lunch, Spring Yard Sale and a Christmas Bazaar.

id Theater is a development only theater company. We believe that in order to have great theater we have to start with great plays, and in order to have great plays we must nurture talented writers. Working chiefly in McCall, Idaho and New York City, id provides a safe place for artists (professional, emerging, amateur & student) to develop work, take risks and introduce audiences to adventurous new works that reflect, challenge and celebrate them.
This development happens through four distinct programs:
• Seven Devils Playwrights Conference an annual two-week Conference bringing playwrights & theater artists from around the country to McCall, Idaho for 2 weeks of rehearsals, readings and workshops of new work, including plays by area high school students.
• NYC Sit-In! A monthly reading series that offers artists who have worked with us a venue to hear re-writes, polish up old plays or hear new works for the very first time at the Back Room at Jimmy’s No. 43 in New York City.
• Bridgeworks supports writers as they bridge the gap from development to production.
• id-iots at Play are writer’s groups composed of playwrights who gather every two weeks to share and read new work.
Since 2001, id has developed more than 145 new plays by Pulitzer Prize-winners, emerging writers, high school students and everything in between. Plays developed through id have gone on to full production at such venues as The Humana Festival/Actors Theater of Louisville, Roundabout Theatre, Denver Theater Center, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, Barrington Stage Company, Chicago’s Gift Theater, Kitchen Theater, Montana Rep and Boise Contemporary Theater, among many others.
