Do you need assistance to fully participate in activities listed
throughout the Recreator? The City of Fort Collins welcomes
individuals of all abilities into our classes and programs. If you are
interested in participation support, please indicate any special needs
you may have when you register.
Note: Requests should be made at least two weeks before the class
begins. Contact Renee Lee, CTRS, 970.224.6027, firstname.lastname@example.org
Special Needs Swim
The Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement
(SLiCE) office at Colorado State University matches volunteers with
individuals with disabilities to provide one-on-one recreational and
leisure swimming opportunities.
If you need more assistance in making your recreation and leisure
choices, but want to be as independent as possible, the Transition
program might be right for you. Explore new experiences, learn about
exciting recreation opportunities and meet new people.
A therapeutic recreation professional will help you develop your
personal Passport to Recreation Profile and discuss your needs,
strengths, and interests. Call 970.224.6027.
These programs are designed to meet the unique needs of individuals
with physical, mental, and/or emotional disabilities. They can be
found in the Recreator identified by the
symbol. The Alternative
Programs are designed for adults with intellectual disabilities and focus
on community activities and social outings. Program descriptions can
be found in the Recreator in the Alternative Programs section and
include monthly dances, outings, cooking, bowling, crafts and more!
There is no fee for personal care attendants providing needed
assistance unless otherwise noted; however, attendants need to
register separately and note whom they will be assisting.
Volunteers are always needed, whether assisting with a few events or
being a weekly support partner. No experience is necessary; training
is provided. Join us for fun and adventure! Contact Jenna Moriarty,
CTRS, 970.224.6125 or email@example.com .
A huge thank you to our interns and fieldwork students and the many
volunteers who help make our programs and services possible. We
wouldn’t be able to do it without them!
