A few notes about our program:
Registration: If you would like to attend a program, you must first register on our website here. From there, a Participant Coordinator will be in contact with you regarding available opportunities for you
If you have already registered but your contact information has changed, please let us know so we can continue to inform you of upcoming programs! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with any relevant changes.
One-Time Experience: Due to our lengthy waitlist, we are only able to provide one week-long program. We provide resources to find recreation in your home community, as well as 3 years of follow-up after you have completed our program.
Recreational Therapy: Our programs incorporate daily group discussions to reflect on the impact of recreation, typically they last about an hour right before dinner.
