Therapeutic Recreation and Adventures

Purpose: Promote Lifelong Wellness

To provide meaningful sports, recreation and outreach programs for people with disabilities. These programs are designed to offer opportunities to promote an active lifestyle, increase independence and enhance one’s quality of life through education, skill development and community reintegration. Year-round services include adaptive sports, community outings and therapeutic activities with a focus on collaboration and a sense of community. We believe everyone has the right to get out and get active regardless of their ability. We strive to break down barriers and empower individuals to discover what’s possible.
