Therapeutic Recreation offers recreation programs and services which promote individual choices, develop leisure skills and enhance socialization. Individuals with disabilities can choose to take part in a TR program which is designed specifically for people with disabilities or utilize inclusion services in which accommodations may be provided so an individual with a disability can participate in any of our recreation programs that are not specifically designed for people with disabilities. For more information contact Sarah Blech at 970-3264.

scholarships Therapeutic Recreation activities are free or at a reduced cost. However, partial scholarships for therapeutic activities are available based on financial need. Contact 970-3269 or 970-3264 for scholarship application information. Don’t let the fees stop you from taking a class or trip!

therapeutic recreation summer camps Registration for TR Summer Camps begins March 1st. These camps are for youth/young adults who need more support than a traditional summer camp can provide. Open to city and county residents. Participants will be expected to manage their own behaviors with minimal staff intervention and must have a desire to participate in programming. Participant requiring 1:1 assistance are welcome with their own aide (aide serves as a ‘volunteer’ and must adhere to department volunteer policies/procedures which will include completion of criminal background check). Beginning February 1, camp information will be available online (www.charlottesville.org/parksandrec), in the TR newsletter, and in the summer edition of the Parks and Recreation Program Guide.

inclusion program at charlottesville parks and recreation summer camps The Inclusion Program provides mentors at Camp ExL and Pre-Teen sites and is designed to help campers with special needs participate in a traditional summer recreational program. If you think your child might have a better experience at a site staffed with a mentor, call or email: 970-3264 or blechs@charlottesville.org
