About Therapeutic Recreation
Therapeutic Recreation offers leisure and recreational activities to enhance the health, independence and well-being of individuals with Intellectual, Physical, Emotional, and Developmental disabilities.
Inclusion services are offered year-round for people with disabilities.
Summer Camps provide a variety of opportunities for children and young adults aged 13 and older with disabilities. Our summer camps provide an exploration of various leisure activities with an emphasis on physical and leisure skill development. Community outings may include a trip to the pool, kayaking or fishing. In addition, we offer inclusion opportunities at all our summer camps sites.
