Scheduling a Recreation Therapy Program

Camp Discovery’s goal-oriented therapeutic recreation programs offer a blend of activities based upon individual and group needs.  The activities used are often as varied as the participants themselves.  Whether it is a hula hoop exercise to assist a preschooler in grasping the concept of personal space or a game of archery to guide a teen in setting and attaining personal goals, activities are clinically designed around identified concept areas and to provide valuable life skills.

All activity therapy programming includes a full assessment, a customized field trip based upon the overall needs of the group, and awards for participants to serve as reminders of learned concepts.  Programs are typically provided within the safe, natural setting of Camp Discovery, however some activity programs can be taken to schools, children’s homes, and other community sites in certain situations.  

Step 1:  Group Needs Assessment Form
The leader completes and sends a
Group Needs Assessment request form to Camp Discovery to secure a field trip date.

Step 2:  Schedule Assessment Date
When the request is received, a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist contacts the leader to schedule an assessment date for participants and discuss desired goals.  

Step 3:  Therapist Assessment
The therapist visits the group at their site to evaluate the challenges facing participants.  Based upon the needs identified, the goals of the leader, and the participants’ preferences, a customized field trip is developed.

Step 4:  Tools for Life Field Trip
The group visits Camp Discovery and enjoys a wonderful day of recreational activities designed just for them!
