Join us for sun and SWAGGtastic fun!

We have a ton of Summer Recreational Activities planned this summerSignup your SWAGGer for bowling, swimming, art classes, skating and more.  

Our Art Expressions and Recreation Program are centered on exposing our SWAGGers to different cultures, museums, and recreations. These experiences allow them to freely discover their feelings in a creative manner that builds self-esteem and self-value. They enhance self-awareness, social interaction and assist them in expressing themselves in a productive manner. While learning in a safe environment, SWAGGers are able to expand their horizons in an enjoyable, constructive manner with SWAGG.

 
***Space is limited so please check your calendar before signing up.   No shows will be excluded from future summer activities.
