We have a wide range of adaptive recreation opportunities available for people of all abilities!
About adaptive recreation and inclusion services
We welcome people of all abilities to participate in our programs! Please let us know if you require an accommodation specific to a disability-related need, a behavioral support, an allergy, or other need for inclusion services. Please register early to allow adequate time to process requests.
The inclusion process is as follows:
- Register for program, indicating a need online or to the person taking your registration.
- If you are registering a new participant requesting inclusion services, you will be contacted to discuss strategies for inclusion and to gather participant information. Returning participants will be contacted as needed to determine inclusion services.
- Inclusion plans will be developed based on individual need. Inclusion staff come from the Brooklyn Park Recreation staff or Reach for Resources.
