inclusive Opportunities For recreation funded by the mississippi council on developmental disabilities
At IDS-USM, we believe everyone has a voice and the right to participate in recreation opportunities equally. Recreation is for everyone; those with and without disabilities. Our programs are designed to be inclusive for individuals in the community. Every month we host an Art Day where community members participate in fun and meaningful art projects. Also, we provide an Outdoor Recreation Day where participants are able to enjoy the environment around them and be physically active. Once a month we also house various support groups where community members, health care professionals and individuals with disabilities come together to socialize and share support with one another.
During the summer we host an Adventure Therapy Program where individuals can participate in a challenging, yet rewarding environment. Ropes courses (High and Low) and Kayaking are the main attraction for this program!
