Leisure Time Activities 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 Leisure Time Activity Program strives to facilitate activities aimed at enhancing the quality of life to adults  with developmental disabilities.
