Evening & Weekend Recreation Program

The Evening and Weekend Recreation Program offers a wide array of community based activities from which to choose.   The program is designed to promote and encourage participants to greater fitness and social interaction.  The program offers both individual and team sport experiences.

The Recreation Program strives to facilitate physical activities aimed at enhancing the quality of life for adults with developmental disabilities. Consumers select activities from a diverse and seasonally rotating list. The twofold focus is to expose clients to new and challenging activities and to promote proficiency of existing skills. Recreation activities offer experience in decision making, goal setting, and problem solving. These organized opportunities promote individual personal development, independence in the community and optimize social skills.
