RECREATION Therapeutic Recreation Programs

At NEPC, we know that kids need to just have some fun, and break from their daily routine.  Our Therapeutic Recreation (TR) services offer that and more seven days a week.

Programs include aquatics in our on-site heat pool and are provided under the direction and supervision of a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS).
