Social Recreation Programs

Our Social Recreation Programs are designed for people with disabilities to increase independence by having fun socializing with peers at the STAR Center supervised by trained (and fun) staff. You help plan the activity calendars; includes making crafts, playing games, dancing, seasonal parties - and whatever else you come up with.

Tuesday Night Activity Club (on Tuesdays) & Wednesday Night Social Group (on Wednesdays)
Feel free to sign up for both Tuesday & Wednesday night if you like! These are social groups where you can socialize with your friends, play games, dance to music, and participate in the arts. Both nights are at the STAR Center. Tuesday meets from 6:45-8:15pm and is a little more mellow; they enjoy more crafts. Wednesday meets from 6-8 pm and is a little more active and loud; they enjoy more dancing and music. 

This is a fun program during the lunch time and afternoon (noon - 2pm at STAR Center). You can sign up for both Tuesdays and Thursdays if you want. Please bring a sack lunch from home. After lunch, we play games, do arts and crafts, and get our bodies moving with easy exercises and some dance moves.

You won't even realize you are exercising when dancing with Marcus and Peggy. Practice and learn line dances, hip hop moves, and enjoy having a good time with your friends. Program is on Thursdays from 4-5:30pm at STAR Center. This program is offered Winter, Spring and Fall. Marcus takes the summer off. All abilities are welcome.



Practice and league competition. Participants can sign up for one or both days. Tues & Wed 4-5:30pm. Bring $4.00 each time for two games and shoes. Location: Pacific Lanes 7015 South D Street.
