Recreation Therapy

Recreation Therapy provides a broad range of activities and programs to assist Veteran patients with learning how to best use their spare time, how to cope recreationally with injuries and how to select positive recreational activities. Many of our recreation therapy programs, such as yoga and adaptive kayaking, are conducted on our medical center campus.  This includes our annual Veterans Creative Arts Festival.  However, some programs, such as our annual fly fishing program and wheelchair basketball, are held off campus.
