The Arc’s recreation program (formally known as community habilitation) helps people with disabilities have fun and be involved in the community while improving social skills. Our fun activities include:
- Overnight, weekend or week-long excursions to places like mountain resorts, the seashore, campgrounds or theme parks
- Day-trips to nearby cities, fairs and festivals and tourist attractions
- Group outings to sporting events, movies, concerts, or dinner theaters
- Outdoor experiences like camping, boating, hiking, ballgames, swimming or miniature golf
- Weekly and monthly activity nights at The Arc, including games, dinners, crafts, and theme parties
Summer’s coming! The Arc offers two camps for children and teens. Camp Safari is open to children aged 4-12 and Teen Camp is open to youth from 12-18. Camps are held at Paradise Farms in Downingtown.
