    Recreation Programs

    Here at Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation, we strive to authentically create a welcoming and accessible environment for people of all abilities and backgrounds! Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation offers adaptive programs which are designed specifically for individuals with disabilities. You do not have to be a member of the Monon Community Center or a Carmel resident to register. Our programs are available to anyone who would benefit from our offerings.

    Adaptive Recreation Program Overview

    My experience at the Monon Community Center has been awesome! I love all the classes and the fun people that I get to meet.  There are some really nice instructors too! They try to get everyone involved and help us meet and talk with each other. Since I moved to Indiana, knew no one, the Monon Community Center programs and instructors have helped me meet lots of friends.

    Extended School Enrichment & Summer Camp Series

    During the school year, CCPR offers the Extended School Enrichment (ESE) program. Through this program, we offer on-site after-school care at all 11 Carmel Clay elementary schools. During the summer months, our team offers 10+ summer camp options for ages 5-15 via the Summer Camp Series (SCS). We are committed to being an inclusive program. By making reasonable accommodations, our inclusion model allows participants of many different ability levels to join our program.

    “I am blown away by the efforts by the ESE staff to include my son, Connor, who has significant special needs, in the ESE program. From getting special activities that Connor will enjoy, to working with the school staff to make sure he is safe and comfortable- they have all gone above and beyond. I cannot say enough good things about how caring, welcoming and overall awesome the program has been for him and us. Thank you so much for welcoming us into the ESE family!”
