We offer and collaborate with others to offer a variety of adaptive recreation activities for children and adults with disabilities. Activities are held after school, on weekends and during the summer.
"iCan Bike" formerly "Lose the Training Wheels" is a unique 5-day summer program experience to give individuals with disabilities the self confidence to learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle. Using specialized equipment, coaching and encouragement, children will "lose the training wheels!" For individuals with disabilities, learning to ride a bicycle has many benefits, such as increased confidence and self-esteem, inclusion with peers, independent transportation, and most important, increased quality of life through recreation.

Our warm water therapy pool is available for Family Swim sessions on Wednesday afternoons. Individuals with disabilities and their immediate family members are eligible to participate. An adult must be present at all times to supervise children under the age of 18 years. All participants are required to sign a Waiver of Liability.
