Introduction to Therapeutic Recreation Programs

The Therapeutic Recreation programs are developed as a stepping stone for people with disabilities.  If you need accommodations, or are looking for inclusive opportunities give us a try.  The Recreation Therapist and support staff will work with you to make your experience with Lansing Parks & Recreation successful. 

Contact us a few weeks out from the start of a program and together we can find a way to make the program accessible for you.  Previous accommodations have included: interpreters or students in training, additional support staff or a buddy system, written or pictorial information.  Give us a call and lets talk.

The support staff are students from MSU who are looking for hands on experience.  Many students are studying: adapted physical education, physiology, special education, social work and child development. 

Be sure to check out the whole website.  Review the Community Activities Guide for our extensive program offerings.  Check out the special events, our pictures and links within the department.  We are here to provide you the best LEISURE EXPERIENCE possible. 

If you have any questions about programs, these frequently asked questions might have the answers.  If not, give a call to Joan 483.4291.

Here at Lansing Parks and Recreation we strive to provide all of the Lansing community with quality recreational opportunities. One way we do this is through our youth scholarship program. In the economic climate of today we are finding more families in need of this financial assistance. Your donation will help us ensure we are able to scholarship Lansing youth who request assistance.
