Canton’s Therapeutic Recreation program was recently honored with an mParks “Excellence in Programming Award,” presented by the Michigan Recreation and Park Association. Over the last two years, this program has served more than 240 families with individuals who qualify for these unique adaptive services. Therapeutic Recreation (TR) accommodations typically include individualized techniques and resources that enhance participation by individuals who are unable to accomplish tasks on their own, without fundamentally altering a program. These inclusive opportunities are available to residents of Western Wayne County with a wide range of disabilities and impairments. Programming has grown dramatically over the last 15 years, and focuses on promoting the development of fine and gross motor skills, health and wellness, social interactions, and independence within the community.
The award winning TR ‘Leisure Club’ is one of several programming options that supports an incredible collection of participants and staff who have truly found a sense of belonging and family through field trips, camps, and fitness classes that really mean so much more. “It’s a magic mixture of life, love, and learning,” said, Jennifer Provenzano, TR Program Coordinator. “These programs transcend what makes us different...celebrating the diversity of the human form and its triumphant spirit, while connecting us all in the ways that we are the same. Leisure Club creates a place where “disabled” becomes “distinct”, and “can’t” becomes “can.”
