Campus Recreation offers many opportunities to get involved in exciting and unique programs. Adaptapalooza is a fun way to participate in raising awareness for Therapeutic Recreation Month, which recognizes the importance of the many services that improve people’s well-being and health each day. The program is free and open to all members of the Student Fitness Center. Activities will include wheelchair basketball and sit-down volleyball. The event will take place Wednesday, February 22, from 5–6 p.m. at the sports courts in the Student Fitness Center. Registration is not required, and you can drop in as your schedule allows.

“Adaptapalooza is a great way to learn about Therapeutic Recreation and also try new activities that you have never done before,” said Erik Bricker, graduate assistant for aquatics and event management.

The fun doesn’t stop with Adaptapalooza but continues with Inclusive Climbing on February 22 from 4–7 p.m. Any skill level can participate in trying out the climbing wall with our Adventure program; climbing supervisors will be on hand to assist all climbers. The event is free for all students and Student Fitness Center members. Equipment, adaptive equipment, side climbers, and instruction are all provided. Crates for service animals and ADA locker rooms will be near the climbing wall. For other accommodations or more information, email Andrew Morreale, coordinator of Adventure programs.

Come and enjoy a time to gain new perspectives. For more information, visit the Event or Adventure section of the website or call (309) 438-2526.
