Therapeutic Recreation


Adventure is a person-centered, community-based Therapeutic Recreation Program for youth and young adults 11 and older with developmental disabilities.


Adventure focuses on modeling, teaching, and promoting positive peer relationships, overall wellbeing, and community involvement. Our programs work alongside the participant’s whole family and team to empower and transform their lives through a structured group environment, providing skills to build friendships, participate in group activities, become an active member of the community, and embrace health and wellness.
