ACC Leisure Services offers Therapeutic Recreation programs, services, and activities that are accessible to all individuals with disabilities. ACCLS supports and encourages opportunities for inclusion in all programs. In addition, adaptive programs are available to provide individuals with disabilities a modified experience for recreational success.



These programs are specifically designed for populations with disabilities.  The programs are intended to assist persons with disabilities in an adapted environment, which may be modified in terms of progression, skills breakdown, techniques, or equipment.

Staff will be present to assist with facilitation and provide adaptions for skill development.  If one-on-one supervision is needed, a parent/guardian or other caregiver should be present for the duration of the program.  Adaptive programs are designed for individuals who require additional assistance or modification.
