Mainstream/ Inclusion

We offer assistance to individuals with or without disabilities to recreate together. To request inclusion assistance, check the appropriate box on the registration form. If registering online please call Rachel Robbins, C.T.R.S. at 303.460.6924. Please allow three weeks prior to the start of class to allow us to assist in providing the necessary support.

Our staff and trained volunteers work hard to provide the highest level of experience possible to the participants. When registering please allow enough time before the class starts, and register according to the needs of the participant. Thanks for your cooperation in helping us keep this program a success.

If you see a class offered in the program guide and would like to participate but need assistance, please let us know. A minimum of three weeks is needed to allow us time to provide the support you need to attend that class. We look forward to providing recreation for everyone.
