MISSION STATEMENT

Provide innovative recreation programs to individuals with disabilities; as well as inclusion services that foster access and health promotion.

ADAPTIVE PROGRAMS

Adaptive recreation programs are designed for individuals with disabilities. Staff to participant ratio is 1:3. Participants should independently demonstrate the following skills:

  • Ability to follow a schedule
  • Willingness to try new things
  • Communicate needs and wants
  • Ability to dress oneself and use the restroom

If support is needed with one of these skills, a personal care attendant must accompany the participant. If a personal care attendant will be attending the program, there is no additional cost, unless noted otherwise.

AR&LE

AR&LE is made up of two parts – Adaptive Recreation (AR) and Learning Exchange (LE). The cities of Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Edina and Richfield have teamed together to offer specialized recreation programs and services specifically designed for people with disabilities.

Please contact Nicole Weedman, therapeutic recreation supervisor, at 952-949-8456 for information and to receive a quarterly program catalog.

INCLUSION

Inclusion is the process in which individuals with disabilities have the opportunity to participate in activities offered to individuals without disabilities. Contact Nicole Weedman, therapeutic recreation supervisor, at 952-949-8456 to request accommodations for a program. Please note, a minimum of three weeks notice is required. For summer camps, the request should be made by Friday, May 15.
