Recreational Therapy

The adolescent residents participate in recreation activities for the purposes of health and exploring positive recreational and leisure interests. Significant resources have been utilized to develop recreational aspects within the 26 acres of campus surrounding the Adolescent Services Center, including the hiking trails, Healing Circle, basketball court, and an extensive indoor work-out room. In addition to gym workouts, clients also participate in outdoor seasonal activities such as volleyball, basketball, Ultimate Frisbee, swimming, tennis, hiking, skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, sledding, bowling, etc.

A pre and post physical endurance test is facilitated upon admission and discharge in order to track client progress/improvement. All transportation and equipment needed for recreational activities is provided by GLRC including activity fees if applicable. If a client lacks proper clothing for a particular activity, GLRC provides it whenever possible.
