REAL - Adaptive Recreation

REAL stands for recreation, empowerment and active living. It's therapeutic recreation right here in Castle Rock.

REAL provides top-notch programming and inclusion support for persons with disabilities. We believe that living a fun, meaningful, active life is important for all members of our community.

Program activities include social groups, outdoor adventures, Friday night programs, family programs, swim lessons, fitness groups, adaptive sports, and more. Meeting locations are generally at the Recreation Center unless notes otherwise.
