We are proud to announce we will be offering a Sensory Fun Nights @ The REC. Activities will be tailored to children with specific physical, developmental, behavioral/emotional and sensory needs. This event aims to provide a special event geared toward the special needs population which allows for them to participate in such a way that they are best served and satisfied. 

  • There will be 3 rooms (2 classrooms and a gymnasium) filled with various sensory friendly activities, including a calming space
  • Each night, participants will have the option of taking part in the making of their own special craft keepsake item 
  • Service animals. (accommodations can be made for those with aversions to dogs)
  • Messy play encouraged so dress accordingly
  • Experienced staff will be on hand to supervise all areas.
  • Each participant will have the option of having a peer partner guide them from activity to activity. 

All ages are welcome. Space is limited.

We require registration for a particular timeslot to ensure participants are spaces so no overcrowding occurs. Friends and family of all participants are welcome and encouraged to join in on this fun-filled sensory friendly experience.

In December we will be offering a Sensory Friendly Santa‚Äôs Workshop. Participants will be able to meet with out signing Santa, given gifts, sing carols, and all the other jolly goodness the holidays bring. 

We can't wait to see you all there
