Recreation- Socialization & Respite Activities

Recreational experiences and social opportunities are essential parts of one’s life. These activities factor in developing one’s identity, seeking personal fulfillment, and promoting overall happiness. Our vision of equitable opportunities for our participants who have intellectual disabilities includes those pursuits, and so we offer a full calendar of social and recreational activities.

These activities allow participants to build strong, positive relationships with their peers while also enjoying all aspects of community life. Events and activities include:

  • An annual overnight trip called, the New Frontiers Annual Trip
  • Weekly after hours Friday Fun Night and Saturday Social events
  • Themed dances including an annual Boo Bash and Winter Formal
  • Trips to local sporting events and restaurants
