Community Based Recreation

Easterseals provides guided community based therapeutic recreation programs. Our trained staff, overseen by certified therapists, offer personalized opportunities for individuals with disabilities to play and have fun while working on practical skills, including socialization, fine and gross motor skills, attention to task, self-awareness and more. Programs include:

Adaptive Adventure Sports

Participate in annual adventure sports activities including adaptive snow skiing, water skiing, tubing, and kayaking. Therapeutic Recreation staff and trained volunteers come together to provide fun activities that provide equal recreational opportunities, improve overall well-being, and create lifelong memories.

Residential Camps and Weekend Retreats

Week and Weekend residential camps are held at various locations throughout Central Pennsylvania for adults and children with disabilities.

Day Camps

Day camps are available in York, Centre, Adams and Cumberland counties during the summer months, providing fun activities and encouraging social engagement in a relaxed environment.

Military Family Programs 

We honor military families by providing free weekend camps for children ages 5-17 of active duty and veteran service members (with or without disabilities). Additionally, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard we offer a variety of week long summer camps for ages 5-17.  These fun adventurous retreats provide a way for children to connect with their peers, share stories, and create lifelong friendships.
