The Elk Grove Park District is a member of a cooperative agreement among 16 park districts which form the Northwest Special Recreation Association (NWSRA). NWSRA's team of full-time Therapeutic Recreation professionals and trained part-time staff offer safe, fun and quality year round recreation opportunities to individuals with disabilities of all ages and ability levels. The activities offered benefit participants through increased self esteem, physical, social and recreation skills development, improved fitness and health, experiencing new challenges, making friends, and having fun! After school, evening and weekend programs feature cooperative sports and games, individuals and team sports, arts and crafts, fitness, cooking, creative arts and drama. Camps, trips, and special events are also available at various times throughout the year.
Inclusion assistance is provided by NWSRA to those individuals who wish to participate in their home park district program. When registering for a park district program, the parent of individual with a disability should inform the park district (and NWSRA, if desired) of any accomodation needed in order to successfully participate in the program. The park district staff will then contact NWSRA for assistance with the accomodation.
