Therapeutic Recreation Services strives to provide enjoyable specialized and adaptive recreational activities for individuals with disabilities. Our purpose is to create positive experiences that develop appropriate leisure and social skills in our participants. By developing these skills participants can become increasingly self-confident, courageous, and independent. We want our customers to feel right at home and to make new friends with staff and other participants.

A wide choice of activities is available. The fun centers around Near Nature Near Perfect Spokane. Our outdoor activities take of advantage of the beautiful Northwest environment which includes skiing and snowboarding at Mt. Spokane, Silver Mountain, 49 Degrees North and Mission Ridge. We offer trips to theatrical shows, indoor water parks, events at the arena such as Monster Jam, Globetrotters basketball, Chiefs Hockey, Disney on Ice, etc. We also go see the Spokane Indians baseball team, local university sport teams such as Whitworth, EWU and Gonzaga. We provide ongoing classes such as aerobics, square-dancing, monthly dances, bowling, biking, camping, crafts, cooking, swimming, basketball, powerlifting, horseshoe pitching, multiple day trips such as Glacier National Park and more.

TRS serves a broad range of people with developmental and/or physical disabilities. However, all other Recreation department activities are open to individuals with disabilities and TRS can help facilitate that process. Our professional staff and volunteers are enthusiastic about guiding participants through these fun and beneficial programs. The age range TRS serves is 6-99. Therapeutic Recreation Services staff provides leadership for activities but are unable to provide personal care. Caregivers are encouraged to accompany participants who need personal care and behavioral assistance. Fees are waived or reduced when possible. For additional information please call 509.625.6200.

Scholarships are available on a case by case basis. Donations are gladly accepted. Volunteers are the backbone to our programs and are very welcome. We are looking for new program ideas so be sure to contact us with yours.

Play forever.
