Adaptive Recreation





        The following adaptive recreation programs are
        designed for individuals with developmental
        and/or physical disabilities.

        Therapeutic Recreation
        Through our various programs and events, we focus
        on what is known as therapeutic recreation which
        extends beyond short-lived activities and works to
        stimulate physical, cognitive, emotional, social and
        leisure development through consistent activi-
        ty so that individuals may participate fully and
        independently in chosen life pursuits. Recreational
        therapy, provided by qualified professionals known as
        Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists (CTRS),
        is extremely individualized to each person by the
        participant’s interests and lifestyle.

        Support and Volunteer Opportunities

        Adaptive Recreation Support
        Scholorships are available for those who need finan-
