Therapeutic Recreation

Irmo Chapin Recreation Commission's Therapeutic Recreation programs are designed to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities in our community. We offer programs and activities for both children and adults with cognitive, physical and emotional disabilities. Our purpose is to create positive experiences that develop appropriate leisure and social skills that help participants become increasingly self-confident, courageous and independent. We want our participants to feel right at home and to make new friends with staff and peers.

The TR program offers a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities that include the following:

  • Afterschool Programs- Seven Oaks Park
  • Afterschool Programs- Crooked Creek Park
  • CAST (Carolina Actors with Special Talents)
  • Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre
  • Bingo Blitz   
  • Burgers and Bowling
