Tuesday, August 13 | Saratoga Lake, Saratoga Springs

The adaptive recreation program aims to provide participants the opportunity to return to previously enjoyed activities or to try something new. Sessions are designed to encourage and assist each participant to have fun, and reach their personal level of success. Sunnyview therapists, volunteers, and experts in that specific activity work provide participants with the resources and knowledge needed to succeed.
Sunnyview works closely with other adaptive sports agencies to connect Sunnyview program participants with a way to pursue the activity on a more frequent basis.
Programs range in cost from $15-$45. Registration is required.
