Recreation Department Offering Program For Individuals With Developmental Disabilities

The Port Huron Parks and Recreation is offering recreational programs designed for individuals with developmental disabilities with its new Game Day program.  “It is a great opportunity for young adults to socialize with friends, while doing some type of physical
activity,” said instructor Margaret Dekoyer-Watson.  The program is designed for individuals ages 20 and older with developmental disabilities. Parents and caregivers are welcome to attend and participate. The program is offered once a month and features a different activity each month.  “I am looking for activities to get individuals up and moving,” said Dekoyer-Watson.  Poly hockey is scheduled for February 16, an outdoor scavenger hunt is on April 6 and track and field activities are available on May 11. All activities are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Palmer Park. Activities may be indoor or outdoor, dependent on the weather.  The program first began in Fall 2018 with a variety of activities.  Residents of the City of Port Huron, Burtchville Township, Clyde Township, Fort Gratiot Township and Port Huron Township receive the $5 resident rate per session, due to a partnership with the City of Port Huron.  Non-residents are $10 per session.  For more information or questions please call the Recreation Department at (810) 984-9760.
