For students ages 13-21: Get out and get active on school vacation weeks! This leisure education program is for teens and young adults with developmental disabilities to come together for a week of learning, adventures and fun!

Each week will offer participants opportunities to try out new recreation activities, plan outings, and practice with different kinds of transportation. You might find us one day at a bowling alley, the next making menus and at the grocery store, and the next canoeing on a beautiful lake! We’ll check out museums, mini golf courses, state parks, the beach, and other places in the community while developing friendships and having a great time.

Participants need to be able to walk 1/2 mile with assistance, be independent in personal care and be able to be successful in a staff/camper ratio of 1:4. Participants who need additional assistance, please call the Recreation Department to see if LEAP might be a good fit for you!

$300 / 4 day session (all inclusive). Registration requires a $50 deposit, with full payment due one week before each session. Reservations can only be made when the $50 deposit has been paid. Deposits secure the spot in the order that they are received.
