What is Therapeutic Recreation?
Therapeutic Recreation is the practice of using recreation and leisure to address the specific needs of everyone in our community, no matter the ability. We believe that every person should be able to participate in recreation activities with no issues, barriers, or hindrances. Our programs take an inclusive approach that provides a positive environment for every participant to learn a new skill or sport, be more active, develop skills, and most importantly, have fun!
The Goose Creek Recreation Department strives to provide inclusive programming to meet the needs of the community. New programs and activities are being added often!
