Recreation Services:

Recreation Support Services at The Arc was designed to meet the overall needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as to have a positive impact on health outcomes including socialization and physical fitness.  People with intellectual and developmental disabilities' decreased participation in recreation and leisure negatively impacts on life satisfaction as well as achievement of desired outcomes for employment and independent living. Thanks to a grant for the Department of Education, The Arc has designed a new and promising strategy for increasing participants and families knowledge, choice, access and participation while expanding the capacity of community recreation and leisure organizations' ability to fully include people with disabilities.  Many recreation options are offered for both children and adults with disabilities throughout Harford County.

Some of the Recreation services offered include:

  • Unified Recreation (activities that are composed of adults with and without developmental disabilities, including basketball, football, bocce and kayaking.
  • Plein Air Painting at the Anita Leight Estury Center, Participation in area health clubs.
