Learn about Adaptive Recreation at BREC!

Weekdays 2pm-7pm

Adaptive Recreation is a program that provides social and recreational services to all patrons with physical or developmental disabilities. Our goal is to offer a positive and supportive learning environment where individuals can explore new recreation skills, develop socialization skills through friendships and have opportunities to gain a sense of independence in their community. Inclusive recreation takes place when individuals of all abilities participate in a recreational activity together in an attempt to decrease barriers to leisure by utilizing adaptations and programming accommodations. The concept of inclusive recreation makes it possible for individuals to choose from a vast array of programs offered by BREC across the parish.

The Sunshine Socials are themed monthly socials for adults with cognitive and developmental disabilities and their friends and family. They have a DJ, snacks, door prizes, socialization and fun.
