Therapeutic Recreation Philosophy

Therapeutic Recreation at BPCC is geared toward providing recreational activities that will promote self and team esteem. Therapeutic Recreation stresses good health habits and safety precautions. Our motto is “Recreation is for Fun.” (You can’t win all the time, but you can always show Good Sportsmanship.) Our program utilizes low organized games to enhance good age appropriate peer interactions, (i.e. improve social skills).

Therapeutic Recreation is an excellent way to work on important skills like cooperation/teamwork & good sportsmanship. Therapeutic Recreation at Brewer-Porch Children’s Center incorporates the following areas: (as indicated on the Day Treatment sheets).

  1. Healthy Lifestyles

  2. Social Skills

  3. Communication Skills

  4. Cooperative Group & Leisure Time

  5. Community Awareness
