Adaptive programs are geared toward individuals with disabilities. We believe that everyone should participate in leisure opportunities that allow for performance at their highest level, and we encourage participation by all ages and abilities. So, we are bringing adaptive programming to all age groups, from Open Flow at The Waterpark to Little Yogis. Programs include Teen Muscle Up, Aqua Cardio Dance, Summer Camping Adventure and more!
Some of our adaptive programs are specifically designed to provide a break to the parents of those enrolled in our programs. Oftentimes we offer programs in the evenings so parents can go on a date, get things done around the house, or relax. Programs such as Teen Night Out, Fantastic Friday and Bowling Nights are just a few of these respite programs.
In case of inclement weather, outdoor programs will be canceled or moved indoors. Please call 317.843.3870 to receive the most up-to-date program cancellations and changes.
All of our programs are inclusive. If you or your family member would like to participate in any program or use our facility, we can make modifications to meet your needs. Requests for modifications must be made at least one month before participation.
Questions? Please contact Michelle Yadon, Monon Community Center Inclusion Supervisor, at 317.573.5245 or email@example.com.
