Therapeutic Recreation offers leisure and recreational activities to help individuals with intellectual, physical, emotional and/or developmental disabilities develop and refresh their mind and bodies in ways that enhance their health, independence and well-being.
Craft classes, indoor recreation, outdoor sports skills, bingo and walking programs for adults with disabilities are offered on different mornings throughout the winter, spring and fall. Check out the current listing of programs for adults with disabilities. Inclusion services are offered year-round for people with disabilities and summer camps provide a variety of opportunities for children and young adults with disabilities.
Check out one of our accessible playgrounds! “A Playground for Katie and Friends” is located inside Huguenot Park and the Boundless Playground is located inside Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation’s Bird Athletic Complex.
Do you have a special talent or hobby you would like to share with people with disabilities? Instructors are needed to assist with recreation activities and classes in dance, fitness, crafts, hobbies and sports for youth and adults with disabilities. Contact Kelly Davis and include the information from the Course Proposal.
